Targeted Engagement Grants and Young MINDS Initiative
Targeted Engagement Grants
The Targeted Engagement Grant program aims to drive innovation in defence policy thinking and to foster the next generation of defence and security experts.
This program provides non-recurring financial support, up to a maximum of $50,000 to fund projects such as conferences, roundtables, workshops, research, and publications. There are two competitions every year, generally in the Spring and Fall.
Requests for funding are assessed primarily on relevance to DND/CAF defence policy challenges, the use of Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+), as well as innovation and the creative use technology.
Young MINDS Initiative
As part of its efforts to foster the next generation of defence and security scholars, MINDS will be launching a new grant category – the Young MINDS Initiative – to support undergraduate students interested in defence and security.
These grants are valued at $10,000 and must be linked to the MINDS policy challenges.
Interested candidates must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited university, and pursuing a degree in political science, history, international relations, public policy, economics, or be able to demonstrate that their field of study is relevant to defence and security studies. Applicants should be sponsored by a professional academic or recognized expert in the field.
