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.
The ACU’s Early Career Conference Grants help to ensure that more emerging researchers – and the universities that employ them – can benefit from these valuable opportunities.
Open to academic staff at ACU member universities, the grants can be used to support virtual conference participation.
Applications closed at 23:59 (GMT) on Wednesday 25 March. Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by the end of May. Applications will re-open in 2021.
