GW4 Technical Staff Travel Bursary Scheme

The GW4 Alliance supports technical staff at all career stages. To facilitate the career development of technical staff across the partnership, GW4 is currently inviting applications to its Travel Bursary scheme.

The aim is to enable technical staff at GW4 Universities to visit other GW4 institutions to share best practice, gain experience with equipment or resources, or to develop technical skills through work shadowing. Possible activities could include a 1-day visit to establish a working relationship, or a sustained exchange to gain deeper understanding of a resource or technique. Funding will be made available for travel and, if required, accommodation.

If you are technical staff at a GW4 University and wish to travel to another GW4 University to support your career development, please complete this form.

This bursary applies to technical staff at all levels of the institution and across career stages, and is a competitive process. Applications will be assessed by the GW4 Technical Infrastructure and Knowledge Working Group (membership available on request).

Deadline for applications is Monday, 24 February at 12:00pm.

Eligibility and further details

To be eligible, you will be employed as technical staff at Bath, Bristol, Cardiff or Exeter university. You will also be required to have the support of your Line Manager/PI to release you to engage with the development opportunity in full, and agree that all money will be spent by the end of July.
