Limited Campus Competitions

Throughout the year, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) administrates several limited campus competitions. These competitions are required because several private foundations and national governmental agencies only allow a limited number of nominees from invited institutions, like CU.  The review process is conducted by an elite group of faculty who were invited by the Vice Chancellor for Research to serve on the OVCR Review Board. Based on their evaluations, nominees are selected to compete for these limited awards.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation: NEW DIRECTIONS FELLOWSHIPS

Internal Deadline: Friday September 5th, 2014, 5:00PM

The University of Colorado has been invited to nominate a candidate from our research faculty for the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's New Directions Fall 2014 Fellowship competition.

Award Information:

  1. The equivalent of one academic year’s salary
  2. Two summers of additional support, each at the equivalent two-ninths of the previous academic year salary
  3. Tuition or course fees or equivalent direct costs associated with the fellows’ training programs.  To permit flexibility in meeting individual scholars’ needs, these funds may be expended over a period not to exceed three full academic years following the date of the award.  The Foundation also expects the fellow’s home institution to use such budgetary relief as the award may occasion for academic purposes, preferably in the fellow’s department.
