The Acara Innovation Fellowship provides up to $5,000 and intensive mentoring and training for 8–12 individual students and student teams annually. Students use fellowship funding to pilot their ideas for impact ventures and/or to intern with organizations where they can develop their knowledge and skills in order to have impact in the future. Selected fellows are considered by D-Prize for an additional $5,000 matching grant.
For the summer of 2016, the C. Charles Jackson Foundation has funded a six-month leadership development program for all Acara fellows. Students will participate in two leadership retreats and monthly workshops and work closely with an industry mentor.
