Pulver Science Scholars
The Pulver Science Scholars program expands upon Colby’s record of offering rigorous scientific undergraduate research opportunities. Pulver Scholars exhibit a deep affinity for scientific research and discovery, an unbridled sense of intellectual adventure, and a commitment to making a significant, positive impact on the world. Once on campus, scholars collaborate in an intellectual exchange, learning from each other, faculty, and visiting scholars in the sciences to emerge with the skills necessary to address the world’s most complex challenges.
Established by a generous gift of Trustee David Pulver ’63, this extraordinary program creates guaranteed opportunities for 10 selected students per class to study some of the greatest problems of modern science through an integrated approach that cuts across traditional science disciplines working under the mentorship of world-renowned scientists.
Each Pulver Science Scholar is guaranteed funding for two research or internship experiences to explore the science disciplines of their choice. They may select from curated programs offered through the Linde Packman Lab, or they may design their own opportunities with guidance from program mentors.
