Call for Applications - UK-US Collaboration Development Award (CDA) Programme

I would like to remind you of the British Council's UK-US New Partnership fund, 'a $500,000 program to develop new strategic links between higher education institutions'. In a nutshell, up to £20,000 are available for student/postdoc/faculty exchange visits, to develop research collaborations and joint degrees. For more information, please see

Finally, the RCUK Office in Washington DC provides a summary of research council US-UK funding opportunities on their website, which is updated regularly. Please see

UK - USA Partners in Science *Call for Applications - UK-US Collaboration Development Award (CDA) Programme* The UK's Science & Innovation (S&I) Network in the US is proud to announce the second round of our UK-US Collaboration Development Award (CDA) Programme. These competitive awards have been created to enable our contacts and partners to further develop relationships that have formed as a result of our various activities (workshops, conferences, visits, etc). The CDAs are small travel grants covering transportation, accommodation and subsistence (no more than £2000) to allow UK and US scientists, engineers, academic leaders and innovation experts to travel in either direction to develop their partnerships. Ideal projects will be focused on delivering strong collaborative results (i.e. joint publications, joint funding applications, student / postdoc exchanges, etc.) in the next 6-12 months.

In this second round we've been able to stretch the timeline to allow for greater flexibility. *Applications are due on 9 May*, and successful applicants will be notified on or before 4 June. *All travel funded by these awards should be completed by 1 October*.
