Details of Association of Commonwealth Universities Early Career.

For emerging academics, taking part in an international conference can have a profound impact on their teaching and research. Conferences are a chance to share research, learn about the latest developments in an area of work, and build valuable professional networks. Researchers find themselves better informed and better connected with new knowledge that can be shared and multiplied amongst colleagues and students.

30 Early Career Conference Grants are available for university staff at ACU member universities. The grants help to ensure that more emerging researchers – and the universities that employ them – can benefit from these valuable opportunities.

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