Grants Or Funding The Department of Anthropology has two grant programs for Bowdoin students who plan to pursue a research project, attend an academic conference, or participate in a field school program. The purpose of these grants is to provide funding for educational experiences outside the traditional classroom environment. The Sociology and Anthropology Enrichment Grants are intended to cover small projects ($50-$500) that take place during a semester, or during the winter or spring break, and are open to any student taking a course in the department. The Riley Research Awards ($450 stipend for 4-8 weeks up to a total of $3,600) are intended for major projects occurring over the summer and are only available to declared majors and minors.
