Association of Commonwealth Universities


Tenable for short periods in developed or developing countries of the Commonwealth, the Fellowships will be offered once a year and shall be held in subject areas or fields of activity in which the needs of the developing countries are particularly great. Fellows can come from inside or outside the university sector. The Association wishes especially to encourage the movement of staff in both directions between industry, commerce, public service, and the universities, with a view to forging reciprocally beneficial links. The programme has been devised for people of proven quality at a crucial stage of their career. It is not an immediately post-doctoral or degree-earning scheme; nor will Fellowships be offered simply for the pursuit of personal research. The ACU is especially keen to receive nominations of women candidates; and for programmes intended to enhance the status and role of women in its member universities. The purpose of the awards is to enable the universities of the Commonwealth, working together through their Association, to develop the human resources of their countries, and to do so through the interchange of people, knowledge, skills and technologies.

 Awards, of up to £5,000, are this year offered in the category of Titular Fellowships only, and are open generally to the academic and administrative staff, or the nominees, of universities in membership of ACU or of Commonwealth inter-university organizations. Preference will be given to workers in the following priority subject areas:
