Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on January 18, 2021 in Announcements

The Association of Commonwealth Universities is currently accepting applications for ACU Early Career Researcher (ECR) Conference Grants, which provide up to GBP 500 to participate in an international conference.

To reflect the current times, this year’s grants will solely fund participation in virtual (online) conferences.

Applicants must:

  • Be employed by an ACU member university as a lecturer, post-doctoral researcher, professor, associate professor, or equivalent
  • Be within seven years of the start of their academic (research/teaching) career
  • Have previously never travelled for work purposes (including conferences) outside their region of employment since the start of their academic career. Please see this page for the definition of regions.

The conference must take place between June 1st and December 31st 2021. High quality conferences organised by universities or academic bodies of good standing will be prioritised for selection.

Full details of this opportunity are available here.
