Jim Greenfield Undergraduate Travel Bursaries

The Department of Classics is pleased to invite undergraduate students in the Department of Classics to apply for JIM GREENFIELD UNDERGRADUATE TRAVEL BURSARIES.

Awards for the calendar year 2021-22 (including summer 2022) will be made on a competitive basis.  Applications may be submitted at any time in the Autumn or early Winter Quarter, with an application deadline of January 15, 2022. Under certain circumstances late applications may be accepted (please check with the department chair).  Jim Greenfield Undergraduate Travel Bursaries may be used for the Department's Rome Program, for travel associated with participation in archaeological excavations, for independent travel to areas of Classical interest, or for other kinds of study-related travel for which the applicant can make a cogent case. In some cases an award might allow a student to remain overseas for study travel in the wake of the Department's Rome Program.

Undergraduate applicants (other than those applying for travel funding for our Rome Program -- see next paragraph) should address a letter of between 300 and 500 words to Professor Deborah Kamen, Chair of the Department of Classics, to be received in the Department office by Friday, January 15, 2021. You may either hand in a hard copy of your letter in the department office, or email it to or directly to Professor Kamen at In it they should discuss their intended travel plans, and how these plans will enrich their study and appreciation of the Classical world. The letter should include a brief discussion of the costs and practicalities of the intended travel, and of the applicant's financial circumstances.

Please note that applicants to the Department's Rome Program do not need to submit a separate application for a Travel Bursary: simply check the appropriate box on the Rome application indicating that you wish to be considered for such funding.

The amount of each award will be determined by the selection committee.
