Craig A. McEwen Student Research Fellowship in the Social Sciences

Established in 2012 in honor of Daniel B. Fayerweather Professor of Political Economy and Sociology Emeritus Craig A. McEwen, the McEwen Student Research Fellowship in the Social Sciences supports Bowdoin student research in the social sciences and humanities, with preference given to research in sociology. 

First-years, sophomores, and juniors may apply. Current seniors are ineligible.

The Craig A. McEwen Student Research Fellowship in the Social Sciences carries a $3,200 stipend. Fellows agree to commit eight weeks full-time during the summer toward the completion of their proposed projects and to refrain from employment during their period of appointment.

If requested and approved during the application process, 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.
