The mission of the African American Cultural Center (AACC) is to cultivate the critical examination and exploration of African American and other African diasporic cultures. The African American Cultural Center Faculty Fellowship Program (AACC FFP) has been established to support scholarly projects by NC State faculty that share this mission. The semester-long fellowship provides each fellow with a research fund in the amount of $600, research support from the AACC Library, and access to a shared office and collaborative work space in the AACC. Fellows are expected to give one public talk about their research and attend other research talks in the faculty fellowship series.
