Barlow Alumni Educators 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 Educators Travel Grant awards up to $3,500 each year to support Bates alumni in pursuing an international experience to enhance their educational and professional goals. Applications are welcome from Bates alumni who have been:

  • working in K-12 school settings or within the nonprofit sector on education-related advocacy or service for at least five years.
  • Preference will be given to individuals who work with or within under-resourced school systems.

A call for applicants is sent to alumni in November and applications are due on January 7th. Proposals are reviewed by a committee of faculty and staff, and the award will be announced each year in mid-February.
