The Office of Foundation Relations and Sponsored Programs serves many roles at Colby. We support faculty throughout their grant’s lifecycle, with services including funding prospect research, proposal development, and award administration and reporting. Additionally, our office takes pride in our long-standing relationships with an array of funders, a testament to Colby’s dedication to institutional advancement and opportunity.

Our work also assists the College in obtaining grants for institutional development purposes. Grants awarded to Colby have originated from many funders, including government agencies and federally funded programs, private and public foundations, and corporate sponsors.

With tailored insight into all funding possibilities, we support our faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to propel Colby forward as a leader in research, innovation, and institutional opportunity. We invite you to follow the links below to learn more about our services and resources.

We assist faculty with finding funding opportunities to sponsor their research, as well as institutional staff looking to increase the College’s resources. Our monthly Grants Digest contains in-depth descriptions of near-term funding opportunities.
