October 2017 Insight Grants Program Competition  

ROADS Information Session: July 26 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. MDCL 2232



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) is hosting this information session featuring,


  • Dr. John Maheu of the Dept. of Finance and Business Economics and Dr. Tony Porter of the Dept. of Political Science, who will discuss their experience as Insight Grant Selection Committee members.
