All Opportunities

To apply, you must first sign in with the your Colby login and password in the upper right hand side.

Applicants fill out one common application which has two parts. This includes a short “General Application,” which will allow access to the “Colby College Experiences Application.” Applicants will be automatically considered for all DavisConnects Opportunities that match their qualifications (click on DavisConnects Opportunities below to read more about these endowed funds). If you plan to also apply directly to other Colby academic departments, programs, and centers, you will fill out the common application first. You will then be prompted to answer several fund-specific questions based on your qualifications (you must click “Submit” on the Colby College Experiences Application before you are able to apply directly to these opportunities). Read more about these other funding sources below. You may be considered for both DavisConnects Opportunities and those that you apply to directly.
