EARC Fund to close to new applications

19 March 2020

Due to the current situation with the covid-19 pandemic, we are not accepting further applications to the Eastern Arc Fund. This is because the anticipated timeframe for the coronavirus to clear, and for meetings and other activities to return to normal, will not allow time for applications to be assessed, grants to be awarded and projects and workshops to be undertaken before the end of the financial year (31 July 2020).

The Fund will be revised in 2020/21 to align to the objectives of the new Strategy 2020-25, with a particular focus on risk-taking research. More details will follow.

In the meantime, there are links to updates on the current situation available at all three EARC universities available here.
