SSHRC Insight Grants Webinar
Tuesday August 18, 2015
1:30 p.m. to 3:30 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 a webinar featuring:


  •          Representatives from ROADS  who will outline the SSHRC Insight Grant application submission process
  •          An Insight Grant Selection Committee member who will share his experience with the grant review process and offer guidance to potential applicants.
