CAPS Program


The Colby Achievement Program in the Sciences (CAPS) is for incoming Colby students from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in the sciences. It provides them with hands-on research experiences in biology, chemistry, environmental science, and other natural science disciplines.

You’ll work closely with Colby professors in classroom, lab, and field experiences specifically designed to help you thrive in your first-year science courses and get the most out of your Colby education.
