This summer, students who research both on and off CC’s campus now have the option to register for GS 198 (zero credit) as a summer research internship course. Students must receive consent of their faculty to enroll in this course. If your summer research is not a part of your thesis or capstone, this option allows for an official transcript notation and record. GS 198 provides a framework for faculty and students to define learning goals, work expectations, and meaningful evaluation. If you are interested in setting up your summer research experience as a GS 198 internship, please discuss this opportunity with your faculty and, if relevant, request that they express interest when setting up your stipend. Please direct any questions to Lisa Schwartz (lschwartz@coloradocollege or 719-389-6685).

The grant committee encourages students to consider applying with smaller projects or projects in the development stage as well as larger projects that approach the maximum budget.

A reasonable living stipend is permitted within the budget.

The judging committee will include students, faculty, and the following distinguished alumni:

Daniel Junge (’92) is an Oscar┬« and Emmy┬«-winning director. From his first film — the Tribeca-winning Chiefs, on Native American basketball — to his Academy Award-nominated “The Last Campaign of Governor Booth Gardner” and his Academy Award-winning “Saving Face” — Junge has consistently made provocative, critically-acclaimed films which have shown on over 50 networks internationally including HBO, PBS and the BBC.

Peter Mortimer (’96) is the founder of Sender Films, which he started as a do-it-yourself rock climbing video production project in 1999. Peter was joined at Sender by his college friend Nick Rosen in 2004, and over the last decade the two have enlisted an amazing team to help grow Sender into a leading global adventure film company that produces acclaimed feature-length documentaries, cutting-edge television series and a variety of commercials. In 2006, Sender joined forces with Big UP Productions to found the REEL ROCK Film Tour, which has become one of the biggest climbing and adventure film tours in the world.

Travis Rummel (’01) is co founder of Felt Soul Media with Ben Knight. In 2007, Red Gold, their first feature documentary, helped create international awareness of the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay and sold to PBS’s FRONTLINE series. Their 2014 feature, DamNation, commissioned by Patagonia, took home the audience choice award at SXSW in 2014. They have won more than 50 awards at film festivals, including making the National Geographic Explorers of the Year list in 2015.

The committee looks forward to reading your files!
