Association of Commonwealth Universities calls application for Gender Grants. ACU Gender Grants are awarded annually to member universities to support initiatives that will boost gender equity and equality on campus. The grants can be used for a diverse range of projects, workshops, and events in areas such as:
Theme: Access and inclusion
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.
Candidates will need to supply an outline of the project and an action plan, including details of what it involves and how it will address gender equity and equality at your university. The project action plan is requested for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 12 months.
Applications open on 20 August 2020 and close at 11.59 pm BST on 20 September 2020.
Since the ACU Gender Grants were launched in 2016, 39 universities in 20 countries have benefited, and at least 600 beneficiaries have participated in workshops supported by the grants.
