Dear Colleagues

Applications for the current round of the Carers’ Career Development Assistance Fund (CCDAF) close on 19 March 2018. Successful applications will be advised in early April.

CCDAF supports staff with caring responsibilities who require support to participate in significant national or international conferences, workshops or symposia that contribute to their careers.

With today’s International Women’s Day announcement by the Vice-Chancellor, applicants can now apply for up to $2,000 to cover reasonable care related costs that they incur when usual care arrangements are not available. The increase in funding available will support more carers to attend important career development opportunities.

Applicants who have already applied need not reapply for additional funding and will be contacted directly to confirm details of their applications.

Further details of CCDAF can be found on the following page: Carers’ Career Development Assistance Fund (CCDAF)

If you require further information or have any questions relating to the application process, please contact 

Kind regards
