As part of its commitment to equality of opportunity for all students who have an interest in studying Classics, the Department is fortunate to be able to support students from a variety of scholarship funds contributed by generous donors. We have a strong record of supporting 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. Awards include: Jim Greenfield Academic year scholarships; Friends of Classics Summer language study scholarships; Classics Students Travel Endowment Awards and Roseanna Wabel McDermott Study Abroad Awards.
Applications, requiring a letter of 300-500 words addressed to Prof. Catherine Connors, Chair, describing how a scholarship award would enhance a the student's ability to study and appreciate the Classics, are due on February 23, 2018. Please consult the detailed instructions available here.
Certain awards, such as the Meg Greenfield Essay Prize, require nomination by a faculty member.
For a full listing of the Department's several endowments and funds, most of which go to support our students, please visit Support Classics.
In addition, both undergraduates and graduate students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the various external scholarship opportunities available to them. More information is available from the Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards. The Graduate School also offers information about Fellowships for Graduate Students.
