Canterbury Grants

Canterbury Grants are awarded to UC academic staff members on a competitive basis annually.  Academics from those schools/departments within the College of Arts, the College of Education, Health and Human Development and the School of Law that do not have access to the Erskine Fund are eligible to apply. The grants enable staff to spend between 30 to 90 days overseas to increase their knowledge and improve their teaching.

Annually a total of five fellowships and/or grants are awarded.  Nominations from eligible schools/departments are assessed by the Assistant Vice-Chancellor on a competitive basis. Applications are typically called for each February with a closing date of the end of April/early May. Decisions are expected to be notified to all applicants in August/September.

Applications forms are available on the intranet for UC staff only.

All information about Canterbury grants for staff is also available on the UC Staff Intranet.
