Principal's Development Fund

This Program aims to enrich the international dimensions of the university, both within our classrooms and within our research environment, by providing subsidies for international travel of scholars to Queen's and scholars and staff from Queen's.

This is funded entirely by Queen’s and is designed to enhance our community’s connections with the Matariki Network.

Staff are eligible to apply for the Category 2 award, which supports visits by Queen’s faculty and staff members to Matariki Network partners.

Find out more and apply.

Staff may also watch out for guest lectures presented by visiting colleagues from across the Matariki Network of Universities, utilising PDF Category 1 funds to do so. These events provide an opportunity to engage with global research, and to meet with international colleagues.
