A list of scholarship opportunities to which our office devotes significant attention and for which Colgate has formalized application processes.
Many of the opportunities on this page require the student to be nominated by Colgate.
There are numerous awards open to underclassmen and those looking for post-baccalaureate experiences. It is possible, and often desirable, to apply for multiple scholarships during your college years and beyond.
Click any individual opportunity to see information about its requirements, deadlines, and benefits, including a link to the foundation website.
Advising on the Application Process
Getting carefully considered and comprehensive advising is very important when deciding which of these opportunities are a good fit for you and your interests, so please be sure to contact the Office of National Fellowships and Scholarships to start the conversation and application process early.
Please note that Colgate's campus deadlines are earlier — often months earlier — than the foundations' deadlines, so interested applicants should prepare well in advance.
