The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is the world's first and oldest international university network, established in 1913.
A UK-registered charity, the ACU has over 500 member institutions in developed and developing countries across the Commonwealth. Drawing on the collective experience and expertise of our membership, the ACU seeks to address issues in international higher education through a range of projects, networks, and events.
The ACU administers scholarships, provides academic research and leadership on issues in the sector, and promotes inter-university cooperation and the sharing of good practice – helping universities serve their communities, now and into the future.
The ACU Titular Fellowships (funded by the ACU’s Development Fellowships Fund) aim to enable the universities of the Commonwealth to develop the human resources of their institutions and countries, through the interchange of people, knowledge, skills and technologies.
They provide opportunities for staff from member universities and employees working in industry, commerce or public service in a Commonwealth country to spend periods of time in other member universities or relevant institutions outside of their own country.
Founded by particular sponsors, each of the ACU Titular Fellowships is dedicated to a specific purpose.
A full list of the awards available, including information on eligibility criteria, can be found on the ACU website - www.acu.ac.uk/membership/grants-awards/titular-fellowships/
Applications for the 2014 ACU Titular Fellowships will be accepted from 1 April to 1 June 2014.
