During the summer, the biological sciences offer summer fellowship opportunities to support student research with a faculty mentor.

Application Details

To apply for a Life Sciences, INBRE, or Paller Summer Fellowship, use Bowdoin Student Fellowships’ online application.  

You may request support for project-related expenses of up to $1,000; an itemized budget and justification should be submitted by your mentor with their letter of support.

Note: Additional materials are required for Paller Fellowship applications; these are listed below. Please see your mentor for further details.

In this same online application, you may also choose to be considered for an Institutional Research Fellowship available through the Office of Student Fellowships and Research.

Students should make appointments early with a member of biology, biochemistry, and neuroscience faculty to discuss individual requirements when working on a summer research project.
