Postponing the 2020 International Development Scholarship Scheme for Professional Staff

With the rapidly changing global travel restrictions and cancellations of major conferences overseas as a result of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone this year’s International Development Scholarship Scheme.

We’re committed to supporting staff leadership and development opportunities, but the health and safety of our staff is our first priority. We are continually monitoring the impact of COVID-19 and updates on application timeframes for the scheme will be announced on the webpage and in The Loop based on the University’s approach to travel for staff.

For further information, visit our COVID-19 page.

Applications are currently postponed find out more...
