As part of ACU’s ongoing commitment to gender equality, the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) (ODVCR) is offering up to three Research Awards for Women Academic Staff in 2018, each worth $12,500. This Award aims to assist women researchers to re-establish their research profile after a career interruption due to family responsibilities.
To be eligible you will have returned to work on a full-time or part-time basis following a period of approved leave in association with the birth of an infant or adoption of an under school-aged child in the last two-years.
Applications for the Research Awards for Women Academic Staff will close on 6 October 2017. The outcome of the application process will be announced by the DVCR by early December 2017.
