Grant recipients must be benefits-eligible members of the Bowdoin faculty during the time in which the funds are used or expenses are incurred. Faculty members terminating their service at Bowdoin who have received awards from the Committee will not be eligible to draw from their grant accounts for expenditures incurred or for work intended to be done after the completion of the final semester of their service at Bowdoin. In addition, faculty in their final year of appointment may apply for funding for travel or other activities that will be completed by May 31 of that final year.
Faculty who are Ph.D. candidates are eligible for Committee awards; however, funds may not be used to cover expenses associated with completing a dissertation.
Because postdoctoral fellows receive research funding as part of their positions, fellows with one-year appointments are not eligible to apply for FDC research awards. Postdocs whose appointments are extended beyond the first year, however, may apply for funding beginning with the final application round in the spring of the first year of appointment.
