If a student researching this summer with a faculty member is considering applying for a need-based housing scholarship, please direct them to visit the SCoRe website (www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/dean/students/research-opportunities/scholarships-fellowships-grants/housing-scholarship.html) for information on this opportunity. The application is now open and students will be awarded on a first-come first-serve basis. Student eligibility will be based on need level and awards will be prorated accordingly. All students will also need to apply via Summit for Summer Housing (regardless of funding source) if they intend to live on campus during their research.

After faculty in your department identify students they will be researching with this summer, please work with them and take a moment to fill out the Summer Research Payment Form (found at the bottom of this SCoRe web page- www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/dean/students/research-opportunities/for-faculty-and-staff/initiate-funds-dispersal.html). The form will request specific information to ensure students receive their payments correctly and in a timely manner. Filling in the set-up form should be all you need to do to set up the student’s pay. After we receive the information, we will confirm the payment arrangement and finalize payments. Students will have funds dispersed via direct deposit (if set up with the college) or checks will be sent to their Worner boxes. Students will be paid on the Friday of the week they start their research. Please direct any questions to Lisa Schwartz (lschwartz@coloradocollege or 719-389-6685).
