  • Creating effective institutional policies.
  • Mainstreaming gender equity into the curriculum.

Grants of up to GBP 1000 are available for staff at ACU member universities to help meet the costs of organizing projects that promote gender equity and equality. Grantees will have to submit a short interim report halfway through their project and a comprehensive final report within one month after completing their project.

  • Staff from ACU member universities from across the Commonwealth are eligible to apply.
