CAMWS invites applications for a new program to support undergraduate students, especially those from underrepresented or underserved populations, who pursue certification in Latin. Applicants for this $500 scholarship may be a high-school senior who commits to majoring in Classics and earning certification in college or university, or a college/university first-year student, sophomore or junior who is pursuing teaching certification. The scholarship may be renewable.
Applications for funds from this program should be sent to the CAMWS Teaching Awards Subcommittee. The application itself should consist of three parts:
a. A one-page statement of purpose indicating specific plans for pursuing Latin certification.
b. A transcript (high school or college) with Classics-related coursework highlighted.
c. One letter of support from a teacher or mentor, sent directly to the Teaching Awards Subcommittee. The teacher/mentor must be a current CAMWS member.
The application deadline is February 1.
A maximum of two scholarships will be awarded each year.
Please submit your application materials and letter of support here.
