Barlow Travel Grant

In 2001, David Barlow ’79 established an endowment fund to enhance study abroad for Bates students, faculty, and alumni. The Barlow Alumni Travel Grant awards up to $3,500 to fund travel abroad by a Bates alumnus or alumna involved in K–12 education, who has been teaching at least five years, in support of educational and professional goals. The grant is available annually.

A call for applicants is sent to alumni in February, with applications due at the end of March. Proposals are reviewed by a committee of faculty and staff, and the award will be announced each year in mid-April.
