Teachers of undergraduate students should remember to nominate their most outstanding young Classicists for the 2014-2015 CAMWS Manson Stewart Undergraduate Award. Every year CAMWS makes $1,000.00 awards to a limited number of undergraduate students majoring in Classics at the sophomore or junior level at a CAMWS college or university. Nominees are expected to take a minimum of two courses in Latin or Greek (normally at least one per quarter or semester) during the junior or senior year in which the award is made.
Students are to be nominated by a department or program; no institution may nominate more than two students per year. The individual who fills out the nomination form on behalf of the department must be an individual member of CAMWS. Each nominee must fill out an application form, write a brief essay, and submit a college or university transcript and two letters of recommendation. Those who write the two letters of recommendations do not need to be CAMWS members. Applicants will indicate on their application the academic purpose for which they intend to use this award money (e.g., tuition, books, academic travel, etc.).
CAMWS is now accepting nominations and applications for the 2014-2015 Manson A. Stewart Awards. All nominations must be received by Friday, January 9, 2015.
If you represent a department wishing to nominate a student, you can do so by completing this on-line nomination form.
Applications must be received on-line by Friday, January 30, 2015.
