This summer, six Bowdoin students are traveling abroad to pursue community-service projects, from helping AIDS victims in Peru to inspiring young runners in Kenya to seek a college education in the United States. These students have each received a Global Citizens Grant from Bowdoin, a program jump-started in 2008 by William Oppenheim ’09. The grant encourages students to explore countries outside of the United States and to approach service in a unique, personalized way.
This summer, the six global citizens — Maggie Acosta ’16, Evan Bulman ’16, Jeff Cuartas ’14, Will Horne ’14, Marcus Karim ’14 and Marble Karuu ’14 — are in South America, Asia and Africa. Read more about the their plans here.
