Domestic & International Fellowships - Life at Colby - Colby College, Waterville, ME
Colby College supports students in their pursuit of domestic and international fellowships in a variety of ways. We aim to: 1) help students identify appropriate opportunities, 2) support students through application processes, and 3) work to integrate fellowships into Colby experiences and/or help students use these opportunities to enhance their post-Colby plans. 
  • Each fall and spring, the Fellowships Committee hosts a “Night of Fellowships” for students to learn about these opportunities
  • Faculty Fellowship Advisors provide individual support for students pursuing specific fellowships
  • Allyson Hawkins, Assistant Director of Off-Campus Study, serves as a point of contact for students who want to learn more about these opportunities and provides support to applicants pursuing fellowships not supported by Faculty Fellowship Advisors
