Shastri Indo Canadian Institute (SICI) is pleased to announce SICI Membership Development Fund (SMDF) for its Canadian Members Council (CMC) Institutions in good standing.
SMDF grants (with small funds up to CAD$500) are being offered to all SICI’s Canadian Members Council Institutions in 2016-17 with the sole purpose of widely publicizing different SICI activities and programs offered by both SICI’s India and Canada offices within their institutions. (http://www.sici.org/about/members/).
For the current competition, a priority will be accorded to the SMDF grant requests from the designated representative of each of the SICI’s Canadian Council member institution (or any other authorized substitute person). It is highly recommended and expected that all of our CMC representatives will seize this unique opportunity to use the SMDF grant to widely disseminate information about SICI and its 2016-17 grant opportunities, enabling the faculty and staff of his /her institution to apply and avail the benefits of being active member of SICI.
The SMDF grant related activities may also be linked to public events (academic or cultural) that showcase their binational (India-Canada) activities, where promotion of SICI’s activities is an integral part of the program. As an exception and in view of the objectives of this program to promote SICI, the executive council members who are also CMC representative of their institute will be eligible to apply for SMDF grant in this competition.
Each Canadian member institution will receive up to $500 CAD.
Upon confirmation re receipt of a SICI MDF grant, if requested by the recipient, eligible program expenses will be accepted with effect from 1st August 2016.
Funds will be disbursed upon receipt of the Final reports.
SMDF applications will be adjudicated by the program and finance officers at the Calgary office, in accordance with appropriate purpose and guidelines mentioned above..
