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 many scholarships are due on February 19 for awards applied the following academic year, but some programs accept applications and administer awards on a rolling basis. Read about deadlines and application requirements for each program at the links below.

Additional University Resources
Students can also find a number of financial aid opportunities through the Student Financial Aid Office and the Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards. With the Husky Promise, the UW guarantees to cover the full cost of tuition and standard fees for qualified students who otherwise could not afford to attend. The Graduate School also offers information about Fellowships for Graduate Students. Scholarships for students studying abroad are available from the Study Abroad Office.
The Department’s ability to support students is made possible by gifts from generous donors.
