Alliance International Quantum Grants

Quantum science is the study, manipulation and control of systems at the atomic and subatomic level. Quantum technologies are at the leading edge of science and innovation, both in Canada and worldwide. They will support the growth and transformation of key sectors, enable new economic opportunities, and help advance a range of benefits for society. Canada is a leader in quantum research, and Canadian scientists are well-positioned to capitalize on these opportunities.


Up to $25,000 for one year 


Proposals must focus on any of the following areas of quantum technologies 

  • quantum algorithms/encryption
  • quantum communications 
  • quantum computing
  • quantum materials 
  • quantum sensing 

Collaborations that synergistically couple any of these quantum technology thrusts to other research topics in the natural sciences and engineering would be accepted.
