The Bowdoin Prizes are prestigious awards given annually to Harvard University undergraduate and graduate students.[1] From the income of the bequest of Governor James Bowdoin, AB 1745, prizes are offered to students at the University in graduate and undergraduate categories for work in the English Language, in the Natural Sciences, in Greek, and in Latin.[2] Each winner of a Bowdoin Prize receives, in addition to a sum of money, a medal, a certificate, and his or her name printed in the Commencement Program.[3]

The award was established in 1791,[4] and past winners include (with year of award and professional highlights):
