Barlow Alumni Travel Grant

In 2001, David Barlow ’79 established an endowed fund to enhance study abroad opportunities 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 November and applications are due on January 15, 2020. Proposals are reviewed by a committee of faculty and staff, and the award will be announced each year in mid-April.
