Student Aid

Affording Bowdoin

Affordable for all.  Accessible to all.

Bowdoin aid is needs-blind—our policy is to meet the needs of any student applying for financial aid. No matter what your family’s financial situation is, if you are admitted to Bowdoin, you will be eligible for student aid. 

Bowdoin aid, given in form of grants, is also needs-based. This means the amount of aid for which you’re eligible is determined by your family’s unique financial circumstances.
