The SCANCOR Alumni Network Grants program provided funds to support face-to-face meetings for groups of scholars who are engaged in, or seeking to develop, collaborative research.  The Network Grants were premised on three ideas:  that collaboration is intellectually generative; that transnational collaboration fosters novel, cosmopolitan scholarship; and that in-person exchanges are important components of any distributed enterprise.

The Alumni Network Grants were intended to build upon and extend SCANCOR’s rich tradition of international, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational collaborative research.
