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. SSTSG assists faculty members including graduate and post graduate students with travel subsidies to participate in conferences, workshops, seminars and academic meetings in India or Canada with a view to establishing institutional and scholarly linkages.
Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Canada. If selected, the SSTSG fund may be used either for the Canadian scholar’s own travel to India, or to bring an Indian faculty or student in his/her Canadian campus/event. Applicants must have been invited to participate by an academic institution and be affiliated with, or travelling to a Shastri Institute member institution.
Shastri will provide up to $1,000 to support the scholars’ international air fare (economy class). Other associated costs, such as costs related to visas, meals, per diem and accommodations are not eligible for this grant. – 10 award available
