Dear Colleagues

Applications are now invited for the second 2019 round of grants under the Carers’ Career Development Assistance Fund (CCDAF).

Applications will be open for 6 weeks and will close on Friday 30 August 2019 at 5pm.

The CCDAF is for individual academic and professional staff with caring responsibilities who require support to participate in significant national or international conferences, workshops or symposia that contribute to their careers.

Grants of up to $2,000 are available to contribute to reasonable costs relating to care of dependants where existing care arrangements are not available.

Types of costs covered may include child care costs, care costs for dependants other than children, and airfares for the dependant to accompany the staff member.

All eligibility requirements are detailed in the CCDAF procedure and applications should be completed on the CCDAF application form.

For your awareness, the next opportunity to apply for a CCDAF grant will be in Round 1, 2020. 

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


Best wishes
