Endowed Funds

Each academic year Colby-Sawyer receives endowed funding from a number of generous donors. Endowed funds may be exchanged for previously awarded general grant funds at any time throughout the school year; this is an exchange of funds, and in most cases, the overall total aid a student receives will not change. The exchange recognizes the portion of your grant that was funded by a donor. Colby-Sawyer grants and scholarships are provided from a number of sources that are recognized in name after the start of the fiscal year. Students cannot apply for these, as they are awarded at the discretion of the Financial Aid Office.

Outside Scholarships

Generally, outside scholarships are used to fill unmet need. If there is no remaining unmet need the financial aid award offered may be adjusted. All outside scholarships must be reported to the Financial Aid Office. If you have received an outside scholarship, please fill out and return the scholarship form.
