ACU Fellowships facilitate collaboration at a distance and the creation of valuable new partnerships between member universities in different countries. From climate action to engineering, the ACU Fellowships cover a range of different topics and disciplines. This funding is intended for virtual collaboration only and will fund virtual exchange activities.
The maximum value of each fellowship is GBP 5,000. Previously, ACU Fellowships have been available in the following fields:
Applicants must first identify and approach a collaborator at another ACU member university in a country other than the one where they are employed.
As part of the application form, applicants must summarise the work they plan to carry out during their fellowship, and how the collaboration will benefit the project.
Applications have now closed.
The ACU Fellowship allowed me to build my research interest in cancer and significantly enhance my career. Through the fellowship I took part in collaborative research, supervised by Professor Gareth Jenkins at the School of Medicine, Swansea University. I worked with professionals, received mentoring, enhanced training, and made connections which often led to further opportunities. The laboratory also has high-end facilities and I was given full access to it.
