Current Colby students from all disciplines are invited to apply for funding to support community engagement, outreach/education and innovative entrepreneurial projects related to climate change, sustainability and other environmental challenges. Projects may be focused at any level, from local to global. Students must identify a sponsor for the project, and if that person is not a Colby faculty/staff member, students must also identify a Colby sponsor who will help mentor and evaluate the student’s experience.
Two rounds of grants are available during each academic year to support research projects in January/spring semester (October deadline) and summer/fall semester (April deadline). Worthy proposals may be considered outside of these deadlines — contact email@example.com. Seniors are not eligible for summer funding after they’ve graduated.
