Call for Applications: ACU Virtual Mobility Project Grants 2022

Application to the Virtual Mobility Project Grants offered by the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is now open. CUHK staff who are interested in organising a virtual mobility project for students to gain intercultural exposure are welcome to apply. 

 

ACU Virtual Mobility Project Grants 2022
Objectives To provide funding for ACU members, including CUHK, to deliver a virtual mobility project in partnership with another ACU member university  before the end of 2022. The grants aim to help students enhance their intercultural skills and global knowledge without the need for physical travel.
Scope of Support The grants can be used to cover the costs of delivering a virtual mobility project which must involve students from the two partner institutions interacting online.

 

Applications could include ideas for:

  • Students from the two partner institutions collaborating on an assessed project
  • A virtual event such as an online summer school
  • Virtual experiential learning
  • Other types of virtual mobility project which fits the aims of the scheme
Grants Five grants of a maximum of GBP4,500 will be available. Each grant will be split between the two institutions collaborating on the project.
Application Interested parties should first identify a partner at an ACU member university in another country. Particular preference will be given to projects that target the participation of traditionally under-represented groups.

 

Applicants should register for a MyACU account and log in to the system to access the online application form. Applications should be submitted with the required information by 8 June 2022, 00:00 (Hong Kong Time).
