ACU TITULAR FELLOWSHIPS 2010/11
The Association of Commonwealth Universities - ACU Titular Fellowships provide opportunities for nominees of member universities to spend periods of time in other member universities or relevant institutions outside their own country. Fellows can come from inside or outside the university sector. The Association wishes especially to encourage the movement of staff in both directions between industry / commerce / public service and the universities with a view to forging reciprocally beneficial links.
The purpose of the awards is to enable the universities of the Commonwealth, working together through their Association, to develop the human resources of their institutions and countries, and to do so through the interchange of people, knowledge, skills and technologies.
Titular Fellowships are open generally to the academic and administrative staff, or the nominees, of universities in membership of ACU or of Commonwealth inter-university organizations. Preference will be given to workers in the following priority subject areas: agriculture, forestry and food sciences, biotechnology, development strategies, earth and marine sciences, engineering, health and related social sciences, information technology, management for change, professional education and training, social and cultural development and university development and management.
