ACU Commonwealth Climate Resilience Challenge Grants are awarded to member universities to support initiatives addressing climate resilience. Aimed at academic and professional staff, the grants support collaborative work focused on either of the two main strategic priorities of the Commonwealth Climate Resilience Network (CCRN):
The grants can be used for a diverse range of projects, workshops and events in areas such as:
Four grants of up to GBP 2,500 each are available for staff at ACU member universities to help meet the costs of organising projects that promote the aims and priorities of the CCRN.
This funding is only available for ACU members and we encourage applicants to collaborate with other ACU member institutions to promote further Commonwealth partnerships. We will also accept applications that are led by ACU members, but are in partnership with institutions outside of our network.
Grant applications that allow matching or additional funds from the applicant’s institution will be looked upon favourably.
Grantees are required to submit a short interim report halfway through their project and a comprehensive final report within one month after completing their project. Additionally, any outputs (e.g. toolkits, papers etc.) developed through the grants are to be made available to the CCRN and wider ACU network.
You will need to supply an outline of the project and an action plan, including details of what it involves and how it will address climate resilience at your university. The project action plan is requested for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 12 months.
Applications open on 13 October 2020 and close at 11.59 pm GMT on 13 November 2020.
