The Classical Association of the Middle West and South sponsors two Manson A. Stewart Awards for primary-, middle-, and secondary-school teachers, as well as graduate and undergraduate students. Recipients must be members of CAMWS.
Teacher Training Awards: Designed to provide some financial assistance to those who wish to obtain certification to teach Latin at the primary through the secondary level, whether the specific courses are needed in Latin or in Education. The award is not intended to cover all costs of the training, and the size of the award varies according to the actual costs (primarily tuition and travel), the size of the committee's budget, and the number of applications. Previous awards have been as high as $2050. To apply for a Teacher Training award, please fill out this on-line application. The deadline for applications is January 30, 2017.
Recipients are encouraged to accept this award in person at the annual CAMWS business meeting.
Travel Awards: Designed primarily to assist K-12 teachers with cash awards to offset the costs of attending CAMWS meetings, including the cost of a substitute teacher. Graduate students, contingent faculty and undergraduates preparing for a teaching career are also eligible for these awards, which are not intended to cover all costs of the travel. The size of the award varies according to the actual cost the travel will entail, the size of the committee's budget, and the number of applications. Preference will be given to individuals who have not previously received this award. Awards for travel to meetings have ranged from $150 $700; for travel to a Southern Section meeting, somewhat less. To apply for a Travel Award, please fill out this on-line application.
Deadline for grant applications to attend the 2016 CAMWS-SS meeting in Atlanta, Georgia is September 23, 2016.
Deadline for grant applications to attend the 2017 CAMWS meeting in Kitchener, Ontario is January 30, 2017.
Recipients are expected to accept this award in person at the business meeting held at the conference.
For questions about these awards, please contact the chair of the Subcommmittee for the Manson Stewart Teacher Training and Travel Awards, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The recipients of this award are announced at the annual business meeting.
