Gender Grant opportunities – Association of Commonwealth Universities

Applications are now open for ACU Gender Grants 2021. 

Grants of up to GBP 1,000 each are available for staff at ACU member universities to support initiatives that will boost gender equity and equality on campus.

  • Supporting women in leadership
  • Raising awareness of sexual harassment and developing anti-sexual harassment initiatives

  • Creating effective institutional policies
  • Mainstreaming gender equity into the curriculum
