ACU Supporting Research Community Training Grants 2024 for Early Career Researchers

Application Deadline: 23 April 2024, 16:00 UTC 

Hosted by the ACU Supporting Research Community, the Supporting Research Community Training Grants fund staff at ACU member universities to organise and deliver training for their early and/or mid career researchers, including doctoral candidates. 
Formerly known as the Early Career Research Training Grants, the grants fund training that equips researchers with essential skills to enable them to succeed in their careers, whether they remain in academia, or utilise their skills in other professional fields. 

Universities can use their internal criteria of what defines an early career researcher (ECR), but this must include doctoral candidates, and the training must be made available to ECRs from multiple disciplines.

Skills which are in scope of the training include: 

  • Presentation skills 
  • Networking 
  • Time management 
  • Public engagement and communicating with non-academic audiences 
  • Media training 
  • Social media 
  • Relationship/stakeholder management 
  • Grant writing 
  • Research data management 
  • Career training, including doctoral careers outside higher education 


  • 10 grants of up to GBP 1,000 

How to Apply:

  • If you do not already have a MyACU account, please ensure that you first register for an account here and then follow the instructions in the registration email to log in to the system before accessing the application form 

Priority will be given to those member universities that have not previously been awarded an Early Career Researcher Training Grant.
