Current Colby students from all disciplines are invited to apply for funding from the Buck Environment and Climate Change Lab to support independent research related to climate change and environment. Students may propose entirely new projects or new aspects of existing research. We encourage applications from students in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and interdisciplinary programs who are investigating any aspect of climate change or other environmental subject. Students must identify a research mentor who will oversee the project, and if that person is not a Colby faculty/staff member, students must also identify a Colby research sponsor who will help mentor and evaluate the student’s research 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Seniors are not eligible for summer funding after they’ve graduated.
