Second round of Early Career Academic Grants open

The second round of the ACU Early Career Academic Grants is now open.

An integral part of our centenary celebrations, the grants are intended to assist staff at ACU member universities in the initial stages of their academic career by providing funding to attend academic conferences and meetings around the Commonwealth, thus enabling the recipients to broaden their horizons and develop international contacts.

Earlier this year, the ACU awarded the first 20 Early Career Academic Grants which enabled academics from the UK, Nigeria, India and South Africa to attend conferences in Singapore, Malaysia and the UK, (inter alia). In this second round, a further 50 successful applicants will receive a maximum of GBP 2,000 to travel outside of their countries to attend conferences taking place in the Commonwealth between March and June 2014.

Further details regarding the scheme, including eligibility criteria, deadlines and how to apply, are available on the ACU website.
