Welcome to A.C.E. 2012-2013.  We look forward to another fantastic year serving Chicago’s best and brightest students while introducing the professional fields of Architecture, Construction, and Engineering!  The Chicago chapter of the national A.C.E. program is made up of 7 teams, each team enrolling up to 30 students and led by a group of young professionals in the design and construction industry.  The mentors who lead these teams work at many of the top firms in Chicago and volunteer their time to teach a younger generation about a career in the A.C.E. fields- and have a lot of fun doing it!

We encourage you to explore this page to learn more about the Chicago A.C.E. program.

Dear ACE Chicago Alumni,

The Chicago ACE Mentor Program and Associate Board of Directors is happy to announce two scholarship opportunities offered exclusively to ACE Chicago Alumni!

The fourth annual ACE Alumni Scholarship is a one-time $2000 scholarship to Chicago alumni who are seeking a degree in the fields of Architecture, Construction, Engineering, or related disciplines at the undergraduate or graduate level. Students pursuing an engineering degree are additionally eligible for the Elli W. Cohen Scholarship, a recurring $2000 award paid annually for a maximum of 3 years until graduation. Each award is offered to encourage excellence at the college-level and to bridge our support of ACE students from high school graduation to an eventual career in the design or construction industry. Qualifying students must have at least one year of post-secondary education; those who have just completed the high school ACE program and are first year college students are not yet eligible.

ACE – alumni scholarship announcement

Please see the attached application for full details.  All materials must be received by the application deadline of Friday, October 12, 2012.  Email acementorchicago@gmail.com with any additional questions.
