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.

During the summer of 2021 an abridged one week program will be held virtually for students admitted to CAPS in the summer of ’20 as well as students admitted in the summer of ’21.

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.
