Proposal Requirements to Retain Existing Riley Scholars

Updated October 28, 2020

The Dean of the Faculty invites renewal applications from programs and departments currently mentoring a Riley Scholar-in-Residence and would like to extend their participation in the program through the 2021-2022 academic year. Since the Riley Scholars-in-Residence Program (RSiRP) fellowship is for one-year only, there is no guarantee for approval to participate in the program for a second year. However, requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis through a renewal application process.

All applications should include the following:

  • A summary of the experience of participating in the program. This section should include the voices of the Riley Scholar, their department/program mentor, department members, and the chair/director.
  • A rationale for renewing the Riley Scholar's fellowship for an additional year:
    • a. Why does your department/program want to support the Riley Scholar for a second year?
    • b. How will the Riley Scholar's department/program mentoring experience build on the mentoring work from year 1?
    • c. How will the Riley Scholar continue to enrich and support the department/program curriculum?
    • d. How will participating in the program for a second year support the department/program's staffing needs?
  • An updated dossier of the Riley Scholar, including a plan for finding permanent employment.

Please submit applications to Dale Willson, Assistant to the Dean of Faculty, at dwillson@coloradocollege.edu by February 22 at 5pm. Approval decisions will be announced the first week of March.
