Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) Early Career Conference Grants 2024

Introducing the ACU Early Career Conference Grants! These grants aim to support emerging researchers and their affiliated universities by providing a valuable opportunity to participate in in-person conferences within Commonwealth countries. Attending such conferences can significantly impact academics’ teaching and research endeavours, offering a platform to present their work, stay updated on industry advancements, and expand their professional network.


The benefits of these grants are plentiful, with recipients eligible for up to GBP 2,000 to cover various expenses, including conference registration fees, flights, accommodation, visa costs, as well as travel and health insurance. By availing themselves of these funds, researchers can enhance their knowledge base and establish connections that can be shared with colleagues and students, fostering a culture of learning and collaboration.


To qualify for the ACU Early Career Conference Grants, applicants must be early career researchers or academics at an ACU member university, with no more than 7 years of experience since the commencement of their academic career (excluding career breaks). Candidates need to identify a conference in a Commonwealth country scheduled between August 2024 and February 2025, review the provided FAQs and application guidance, and submit their applications through the designated online form by the deadline of April 23, 2024.
