Grants are awarded to academic staff who have not previously had the opportunity to travel outside their home region to enable participation in an academic conference of their choice in a Commonwealth country other than their own.
The grants aim to facilitate international mobility and career development by opening up opportunities for early career academics from ACU member universities. Since the scheme began in 2013, staff of 53 different member institutions have benefitted from the receipt of an early career grant.
In 2016, 30 grants in total are on offer, with a maximum amount of GBP 2000 each. Applications close on 15 April 2016.
We hope you will share this opportunity across your institution and encourage eligible academic staff to apply. Further information and the application form can be found on the ACU website atwww.acu.ac.uk/membership/grants-awards/early-career-academic-grants/
