Showcasing and Disseminating Knowledge and Research (SDKR)

Programme is currently closed for this year.

For over 50 years, Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute (SICI) has been promoting academic research, through various programmes and grants to young and established researchers, faculty members, and students at all levels in the India-Canada bilateral corridor.  With a legacy of over 53 years now, Shastri alumni are dispersed all over India and Canada. Each year, hundreds of awardees get associated with the Institute and become an integral part of the large SICI family. SICI takes pride in respective and unique contribution of each of its scholar, facilitate their work and assist in expanding their horizons as much as possible.

In continuation with it’s mission towards building and strengthening intellectual and cultural linkages through research, dialogue and exchange, SICI is introducing an opportunity to help its awardees to share their research and studies completed under the umbrella of the Institute. It will not only help in reaching out to peers but also prove beneficial in building connections.  For young researchers, such an opportunity will boost the confidence as interaction with numerous individuals/researchers will expand their horizon of knowledge and experience, build diversified perspectives and help in realising their career aspirations via learning and knowledge sharing.

Shastri alumni are also potential channels to create linkages between India and Canada with their first-hand experience and, thus, are a source of inspiration for those who are aspiring to be Shastri Awardees. Once again, SICI welcomes its awardees to share their research, the journey undertaken and its results. Every month two SICI scholars will be invited to share their research findings completed under the Shastri award/grant. The mode of interaction will be virtual, through an online platform such as Zoom or Google Meet. 

Awardees are invited to contact Ms. Reshma Rana, Programme Officer at preferably by January 15, 2022 to share their interest to be a part of this initiative.

Looking forward to a fruitful engagement.

All the best!
