The ROADS Development Unit assists McMaster researchers with the development of proposals for funding by:

  • reviewing applications and providing advice;
  • drafting institutional elements of proposals, as applicable; and
  • ensuring that proposals and funding agreements comply with University policies, and conform to the criteria and guidelines of the program sponsor.

All proposals for research funding from applicants and co-applicants in the Faculties of Business, Engineering, Humanities, Science and Social Sciences must be approved by ROADS on behalf of McMaster University prior to submission.

To obtain institutional approval a copy of the proposal and a completed application approval form must be submitted to ROADS.

    Contact the advisor for your department for more information.
