Q&A: Kiersten King ’14 on her Beinecke Award and Future in Archaeology

Bowdoin junior Kiersten King, of Colorado Springs, Colo., has won a Beinecke scholarship to support her aspirations to become an archaeologist of the ancient Mediterranean world. The Beinecke Scholarship Program is designed “to encourage and enable highly motivated students to pursue…a graduate course of study in the arts, humanities and social sciences.” Each year, only 20 students from across the country with financial need and exceptional academic promise receive this award. King recently answered questions about her scholarship while in Rome, where she studied abroad this semester.
