Financial Support

The Department of Classics administers a number of funds available to support undergraduate and graduate students in their studies. These merit-based scholarships and awards support on-campus academic study, study abroad, travel for independent study, and more, in amounts of up to several thousand dollars.

The department especially encourages applications from students who face significant financial constraints in pursuing their university education; students with deep personal experience with, or commitment to, diverse cultures; and students from backgrounds underrepresented in Classics.

Applications for travel bursaries and textbook support are accepted on a rolling basis, whereas some scholarship applications are due in mid-February for awards applied the following academic year. Read about deadlines and application requirements for each program at the links below.
