Joan Balchin Memorial Awards 2013
Applications are invited from university administrators and senior clerical staff for awards from the Joan Balchin Memorial Travel Fund, and must be submitted by the end of April.
The awards are tenable either in the UK or overseas and may be held concurrently with other awards or income.
The awards are intended to further the education and training of administrators, with particular emphasis on assisting with their travel expenses in achieving this aim. One or more of the awards may be made each year and the value will be determined in the light of the plans of each successful candidate and of any other financial assistance that may be available. Grants are not intended to defray the whole costs.
Consideration may also be given to the award of a limited number of smaller grants towards costs of conference and accommodation expenses where these are exceptionally high.
Applicants, who must be eligible for membership of the Association of University Administrators (AUA), should submit detailed proposals indicating how their education and training will be developed and including details of proposed travel arrangements. Copies of the Regulations of the Fund are available from Sue Edwards.
Ideally, completed applications should be received by Sue Edwards before the end of April 2013, although it might be possible to consider late submissions if funds permit.
