The College Student Success Innovation Centre (CSSIC) at Mohawk College invites emerging and established external scholars at Canadian postsecondary institutions whose research is positioned to promote college student success to apply for the CSSIC Research Fellowship.

The goals of this fellowship are to identify and validate innovative student services and/or teaching approaches, methods, and practices that promote success for postsecondary students at Mohawk College and beyond; advance evidence-based research and practice in the college sector; and foster inter-institutional collaboration between Mohawk College and other postsecondary institutions. The resulting research findings and project outputs must be directly applicable to Mohawk College students and will be disseminated widely.

This opportunity leverages CSSIC’s previous experience implementing student success interventions within research projects and replication studies in partnership with students (as co-researchers, leveraging the students-as-partners model [Cook-Sather, Bovill, & Felten, 2014; Healey, Flint, & Harrington, 2014; Mercer-Mapstone et al., 2017]), practitioners (faculty and student affairs professionals), and external researchers across North America, testing leading-edge practices in college contexts.
