What kind of references should I provide? What is required of my referees?

The RCC asks you to list three scholars who know you and your work well. These can be current or former colleagues or advisors. 

We only ask for contact information of your referees; they do not need to provide letters during the application process. In some cases, we will contact your referees when choosing successful candidates. However, we often take candidates without contacting their referees.
