Scholarly Travel Subsidy Grant



The objective of the Shastri Scholar Travel Subsidy Grant projects are to promote the mobility of scholars between India and Canada, to initiate or strengthen Canada-India knowledge exchange and partnerships, which support education cooperation between the two countries.  Grants are available to Canadian scholars for travel to participate in conferences, workshops, seminars and academic meetings in India or Canada with a view to establishing institutional and scholarly linkages.
