Dr. Jan Linhart announces the establishment of the Linhart Family Scholarship Fund for Bowdoin College.

Dr. Jan Linhart, a member of Bowdoin College's Class of 1975, announced the establishment of the Linhart Family Scholarship Fund for Bowdoin College, as a part of his family's continuing commitment to education.

“I know how important the financial aid endowment is to making it possible for the most capable students, regardless of their ability to pay fully, to attend a school of Bowdoin's caliber,” said Dr. Linhart.

Dr. Linhart, a financial aid recipient himself, as well as a first generation immigrant from Czechoslovakia recognized the importance of supporting education early in life. While working towards his D.D.S. degree from New York University, Dr. Linhart immediately began giving back to Bowdoin with $5.00 gifts to the Alumni Fund, all that he could afford from a tight graduate student's budget.

Jan and his wife Ellen now expect that their two sons, who both currently attend Bowdoin, will in turn support the Fund in what they hope will become a family tradition. The Linhart family was featured this month in Bowdoin, the college's alumni magazine for their generous philanthropic efforts (to view the article, visit ).
