Special Notes

SICI strongly advises all potential applicants that it is their responsibility to find the right partner in another country. In order to find potential matching partners/faculty members in Canadian/Indian member universities, the applicants are strongly advised to visit the websites of preferred Canadian/Indian universities to contact ONLY the appropriate faculty members of desired schools/departments and write to them directly expressing the necessary background of your proposal and partnership interests. We strongly advise all potential applicants to refrain from sending generic e-mail request to SICI officers or its executive council members or mass e-mailing many other recipients seeking their help to find you a partner, because it could be counterproductive and may hamper their efforts in finding a correct partner. Applicants are also advised to approach potential partners well in time so that they can submit a well-prepared application after consultation with their partner.
