Twice a year, the Center for the Arts and Humanities invites proposals from Colby students for funding of original research projects in the humanities or humanistic disciplines. In the event that there are insufficient funds to support all proposals, preference is given to students majoring or minoring in the humanities or humanistic disciplines. Grants will range from $500 to $3,000. Funds may be allocated to cover any legitimate research expenses including but not limited to the purchase of research materials, travel, food, and lodging expenses associated with data gathering. Stipends are not covered under this program.
