Summer 2013

Eighteen Bowdoin students were awarded fellowships for coastal or marine faculty mentored summer research this year. Four of these students participated in a multi-year research collaborative with scientists and economists from Bowdoin, Bates, the University of Southern Maine, and Penebscot East Resource Center who are studying the ecological recovery of and present and past alewife populations in the Kennebec and Androscoggin watersheds.

Summer 2012 Fellows

All the students gave Pecha Kucha research presentations (20 slides/ 20 seconds per slide) in July.
