Academy Scotland Travel Fund

Thu 8th Jan, 2009

The Higher Education Academy is piloting an Academy Scotland Travel Fund, which aims to encourage the exchange and dissemination of good practices at the discipline level throughout the UK by enabling academic staff in Scottish HEIs to attend Academy-run events outside Scotland.

In round 1 (November 2008) there were 13 successful applicants.  The closing date for Round 2, in which the Higher Education Academy will be able to fund 35 applications, will be 27 February 2009 (for events being attended after that date). Further details and an application form are available at http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/aboutus/scotland/events/travel_fund
