Micoleau Family Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts

The Micoleau Family Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts was established by Charles ’63 and Judith Micoleau and their son, Tyler Micoleau ’91. It supports a fellowship to Bowdoin undergraduates to foster research and/or structured training in the creative and performing arts (including music, theater and dance, the fine arts, creative writing, and film studies). Preference will be given to fellowships in theater with a secondary preference to those students whose state of residence is Maine. Fellowship recipients may study under the direction of a Bowdoin faculty member; however, opportunities that cannot be adequately replicated under the direction of a Bowdoin faculty member, yet are deemed essential to a student’s academic program (e.g., participation in major summer festivals, pre-professional training, internships) may also be undertaken.

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

For the spring 2018 cycle, the College anticipates making one award for no more than $4000.

Examples of opportunities that can be supported by a Micoleau Family Fellowship include, but are not limited to, participation in major summer festivals, pre-professional training, or internships.  The award may be used for any combination of travel expenses, tuition costs related to a formal training program, instruction fees, or a stipend for the Fellow.
