ICED Travel Grants

International Consortium for Educational Development (ICED) Travel Grants 

Council Meeting, Nairobi, Kenya, 2nd – 3rd June 2024 

The aims of ICED are to: 

  • Serve as a hub, networker, curator, and disseminator for educational development practitioners, researchers, and resources. 
  • Help new and existing Member Networks develop their capacity for educational development through the sharing of good theory, practice, problems, and solutions. 
  • Increase the number of partner organisations of ICED and help educational developers in countries or regions where no network organisations exist. 

The ICED Council, which comprises the representative from each member network, meets every year for a two-day meeting which includes a one-day symposium and a one-day business meeting. Every second year the symposium and meeting are held immediately prior to the ICED Conference. 

To pursue the aims of ICED, the ICED Council has established a travel grants fund to support participation in the symposium and meeting. The travel grants are to support: 

  • Existing member networks without the financial resources to support the participation of their representative 
  • A representative from a new network seeking to apply for membership of ICED  
  • An individual or representative of an emerging network. 

Limited funds are available. The number of travel grants and the amount of each grant will be determined primarily by financial need, but other factors will also be considered, including: 

  • The potential benefit of participation,  
  • Whether the amount is reasonable and realistic, given available funds, and 
  • The number of applications.   

Applications will be assessed by a sub-committee of the ICED Board. 

Applicants must provide the following information and email it as an attached word document (2- pages maximum) to the ICED Administrator Roz.Grimmitt@ICEDONLINE.NET by Monday 25th March 2024. 

  1. Name of applicant 
  2. Contact details 
  3. Network name (existing or emerging) 
  4. The current status of the network (e.g. active/inactive/emerging, financial, etc) 
  5. The need for a travel grant (e.g. network finances, geographical barriers, no institutional support) 
  6. Potential benefit from participation for the network/emerging network 
  7. Other potential sources of financial support (applied for/already secured) 
  8. Ability to attend the full two-day meeting (yes/no) 
  9. Attendance by network representative/s at past meetings 
  10. Any prior ICED travel grant or financial support provided to the network or individual 
  11. Other information you wish to provide 

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by mid-April. If a successful applicant cannot accept the grant or does not require the full amount awarded, they should notify the ICED Administrator as soon as possible so the funds can be redistributed.
