We seek excellence of all types and believe in equal opportunity. Our policy is to meet the full calculated need of every student applying for student aid. Bowdoin's need-based system of awarding resources has many checks and balances, and it first requires that all families provide a complete and accurate picture of their financial circumstances. Our Student Aid team is prepared to assist you throughout the application process.
