ASSOCIATION OF COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITIES

ACU Titular Fellowships

The Association of Commonwealth Universities is inviting nominations for fellowships tenable for up to six months in developed or developing countries of the Commonwealth. These fellowships are open to the academic and administrative staff, or the nominees, of ACU member universities and are offered in subject areas in which the needs of developing countries are particularly great.

The University is invited to make two nominations for these awards. At least one of the nominations must be for a staff member from a university in another ACU member country, or from the industrial, commercial, or public sector to visit Oxford. Eligible candidates must be members of the university staff and be aged between twenty-eight and fifty.

Further information and application forms are available from the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: 70134). Deadline for applications via the International Office: 17 May.

British Academy/ACU Grants for International Collaboration

Funds are available to support international joint activities, involving British scholars in collaboration with Commonwealth partners for advanced research, at postdoctoral or equivalent level or beyond in the fields of the humanities and social sciences.

Applications must be for projects involving genuine collaborative work between a defined group of scholars in one, or possibly two, other Commonwealth countries. Priority will be given to applications involving the initiation of a new programme where there is an expectation of continued collaboration, or a defined outcome such as planned joint publications.

The awards are tenable for one year only and provide a maximum of £5,000 for travel, maintenance, and research costs incurred in partner countries.

The application form and further details are available on the ACU Web site at www.acu.ac.uk. Candidates should apply directly to ACU before 1 May.
