Information Session

2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. The objectives of the program are to:

·         build knowledge and understanding from disciplinary, interdisciplinary and/or cross-sector perspectives through support for the best researchers;

·         support new approaches to research on complex and important topics, including those that transcend the capacity of any one scholar, institution or discipline;

·         provide a high-quality research training experience for students;

·         fund research expertise that relates to societal challenges and opportunities; and

·         mobilize research knowledge, to and from academic and non-academic audiences, with the potential to lead to intellectual, cultural, social and economic influence, benefit and impact.


The McMaster Research Office for Administration, Development & Support (ROADS) will be hosting an information session featuring: 


.   Representatives from ROADS  who will outline the SSHRC Insight Grant application submission process

.   Insight Grant Selection Committee members who will share their experiences with the grant review process and offer guidance to potential applicants.
