These Bowdoin grants support academic-year undergraduate research and travel in all disciplines. Awards are up to $800 and students may receive up to one mini-grant per semester. There are three separate awards but students do not need to indicate the specific mini-grant(s) for which they would like to be considered:
- The Davis Fund exists "to encourage undergraduate interest in international affairs."
- The Koelln Fund exists "...to encourage broad, essentially humanistic inquiry," particularly which is interdisciplinary in nature.
- The Roberts Fund exists "...for the purpose of helping some underprivileged scholar do research in any field." Please note that student fellowships defines 'underprivileged' as students currently receiving financial aid and that these funds are earmarked for senior honors research.
Applications are considered monthly and are due on the 15th of every month.
