Applications are now closed for 2023/2024.

Commonwealth Peace and Reconciliation Network Grants are aimed at academic and professional staff at ACU member universities to support initiatives advancing peace, reconciliation, and indigenous knowledge.  

The grants aim to support collaborative work focused on either of the two main strategic priorities of the Commonwealth Peace and Reconciliation Network (PRN): 

  • Historical memory and trauma 
  • Institutional reform and indigenous knowledge 

From designing new learning modules to improve the understanding of settler-Indigenous relations in Canada, to promoting a decolonised approach to studying abroad, Peace and Reconciliation Network Grants have funded a range of initiatives led by our member universities. 

Any outputs developed through the grants (e.g. toolkits, videos/recordings or papers) should be made available to be shared with the Peace and Reconciliation Network, in order to increase impact of the grants.

What does the grant include? 

  • Four grants of GBP 2,500
