Support for faculty research is a singular priority for the College. The Office of the Dean for Academic Affairs serves as a gateway for faculty seeking support and funding for their research. Questions about funding sources, both internal and external, can be directed to our staff. The Faculty Development Committee oversees the awarding of internal College grants for research, teaching, and sabbatic leaves. This group of faculty stands ready to advise colleagues on issues of internal funding. This site also provides announcements and guidelines for sources of external funding for faculty research. Bowdoin Faculty are active scholars and their record of publication reflects the College's commitment to research support.
