The Department of Classics is pleased to announce that we are implementing an additional component to the Jim Greenfield Scholarship program, a scholarship to reimburse undergraduate majors in the Department for application fees to graduate programs and professional schools. Here is a statement of our policy and guidelines on how to apply:
The Department of Classics invites applications from undergraduate majors in Classics, Classical Studies, Latin, or Greek for reimbursement of funds paid in application fees to graduate programs or professional schools (e.g., law or medical school). Requests for reimbursement should be made after graduate applications have been submitted and fees paid. To apply, address a letter to the chair of the Department in which you provide a brief statement of your plans for graduate study as well as a list of the programs to which you have applied and the total of all application fees paid. Please include with your letter a current transcript and photocopies of receipts for fees paid. Reimbursement may be made up to a limit of $500; awards are competitive, paid out from the Jim Greenfield Undergraduate Scholarship Fund (Academic Initiatives), and granted at the discretion of the Department's Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Committee. The application deadline is February 1, 2014; in exceptional circumstances, later applications may be accepted.
