The University of Ghana encourages all Senior Members to actively engage in professional and academic activities that would contribute to or enhance the image of the institution on a global basis. In this regard, the University highly encourages participation of Senior Members in international conferences, seminars and workshops as presenters, viewers, critics, discussants and chairs of sessions. Equally important are the possibilities of hosting or staging international conferences in Ghana.
To this end the University, through the Office of Research, Innovation and Development (ORID), endeavours to fund appropriate applications for participation in, and organisation of conferences.
Conference grants are available to all Senior Members to attend conferences relevant to their field. Applications will, therefore, be assessed on the basis of (among other things):
Funds available, importance of conference (priority will be given to conferences of academic/professional merit), the applicant's degree of participation, venue of conference, applicant's records, other sources of support, and proper documentation.
