Since 1994, the SCS began awarding the Minority Scholarship in Classics and Classical Archaeology to students. With a maximum scholarship being award at a total of $4,500, this can go towards tuition fees.
Institutions where will carry out the studies:
Eligible proposals might include (but are not limited to) participation in classical summer programs or field schools in the Mediterranean or language training at institutions in the U.S., Canada, or Europe.
Who can participate?:
Those eligible are members of historically underrepresented ethnic and racial minority groups in the United States and Canada, for example, African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, Native-American, and Pacific-Islander American students. Please also note that until further notice, proposals to attend programs run by the Paideia Institute will not be eligible.
Candidates will be judged based on (a) their academic qualifications, including demonstrated ability in fields that prepare a student for further study in Classics or archaeology, (b) the quality of their proposal, and (c) financial need. The application must be supported by two letters of recommendation.
