From the Institution

Home to roughly 2,000 students in beautiful Midcoast Maine, Bowdoin is proof that if you give smart, curious young people access to one of the best educations on earth, they will use it to create good in the world. The Bowdoin curriculum prepares graduates for lives of ethical practice across all disciplines: law, medicine, artificial intelligence, environmental research, and thousands more. Our students come from a wide array of backgrounds, experiences, and locations. They have diverse viewpoints and different interests, but they all bring the same two things with them to Bowdoin: kindness and an open mind. Bowdoin is committed to meeting the full financial need of every student we admit, without using loans in our aid packages. We are one of only seven colleges in the US that is need-blind for every applicant. Your opportunity to attend Bowdoin will never depend on your ability to pay for it.
