The ISASA Staff Development Fund (SDF) provides visitorship awards for staff at member schools to attend conferences and workshops of educational value, as well as conduct research relevant to independent schools.

Applications for SDF awards in 2018 will open in June/July of 2017. Applications must be supported by confidential letters of recommendation from Heads or, in the case of Heads applying, from the Chairman of their governing body. These must be addressed to the Secretary and be submitted by September 2017.

Applications from staff members of schools that do not contribute to the Staff Development Fund will not be considered.

Background and application documents will be made available on the ISASA website in June/July 2017.
