Two Young Faculty Members From CIIT Secure The Prestigious ACU Centenary Awards
Dr. Saddam Hussain, Deputy HoD, Management Sciences (Attock campus) and Mr. Hassan QayyumChohan, Lab Engineer, Chemical Engineering (Lahore campus) made CIIT proud and brought international recognition to it by securing the ACU small grants for early career academics in an open competition where 500 member universities spread over fifty countries participated. Laudably CIIT staff members secured two positions out of the 40 available slots.
The grant is valued at£2,000/- each and it’s supposed to be used for attending academic conferences or visiting a potential collaborator.
It may be mentioned that Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is the oldest international association of universities in the world. CIIT is an active member of this association and has received a number of fellowships in the past. Further details of the Association’s work, including details of the next round of early career awards, can be found on the ACU website at: www.acu.ac.uk
Do look out for the next round of small grants which is likely to be announced towards the end of this calendar year. Who knows that this platform provides you the funds to pay for your professional overseas travel, like it did for Dr. Hussain and Mr. Chohan.
