Edward E. Langbein Sr. Summer Fellowship

The Edward E. Langbein Sr. Summer Fellowship is a gift of the Bowdoin Parents Association in memory of a former president and secretary of the Association. A Langbein Fellowship is awarded annually to an undergraduate or recent graduate to enable the recipient to participate in summer research or advanced study directly related to his or her major field or life work.

All current students, including seniors, may apply.

The Langbein Summer Fellowship carries a $3,200 stipend. Summer fellows agree to commit eight weeks full-time toward the completion of their proposed projects and to refrain from employment during their period of appointment. The Langbein Fellowship is not offered during the academic year.

If requested and approved during the application process, summer fellows may also be reimbursed for up to $500 for justified research related expenses (e.g., laboratory/art supplies, analytical costs, and travel beyond the local area to conduct field work or to visit an archive).

Should a faculty mentor feel that a fellow is not making sufficient progress toward the research goals set forth in the fellow's proposal, the College reserves the right to discontinue funding.
