Career Development Scholarships

Collaborate. Innovate. Learn. Develop. Share. Achieve. Lead.

The Career Development Scholarship program seeks to engage staff in self-identified learning and development activities that align with Performance and Career Development (PACD) plans and the strategic direction of their Faculty/Institute/Division, and that are not normally supported via other means.  Applications which address annual themes are strongly encouraged and will be looked upon favourably by the selection committee. This year the annual themes are:

  • Cross-organisational collaboration; and
  • Cross-organisational leadership.

All eligible staff are encouraged to apply, and applicants are strongly encouraged to be innovative in proposing how their needs may be met. Further information is provided in the below guidelines.

Applications must be submitted by Friday 5 May 2017.
