Early Career Academic Grants are open to early career academics employed by ACU member universities, enabling them to participate in a conference held in a Commonwealth country other than their own. A minimum of 30 grants are on offer in 2017. Applications are open to university staff who are less than ten years from the start of their employment in an academic role.

Applicants must not have previously worked or attended an academic conference outside their home region. The conference to be attended must be a recognised academic conference in a field relevant to the applicant's area of expertise. The conference must be held in a Commonwealth country other than the applicant's country of employment. Applicants must give details of their chosen conference at the time of application.

Applicants can strengthen their application by providing evidence of the submission/acceptance of a paper or poster, or other communication with the conference organisers. It is highly recommended that applicants attach this evidence to their application form. The grant must be used to participate in a conference between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2017. The maximum amount of each grant is GBP 2000. Grants can be used to cover travel and visa costs, conference fees, accommodation and subsistence.
