The Christine Fernald Sleeper Educational Travel Award is designed to support teachers of Latin by encouraging educational travel. The award was developed in honor of Christine Sleeper, one of the “Founding Mothers” of the National Latin Exam and life-long travel enthusiast, in order to offer Latin teachers the opportunity to expand horizons for themselves and their students. This award may be used to enroll in an established program abroad, such as the American Academy in Rome, a trip to a classical site such as those offered by the Vergilian Society, or an educational trip of one’s own design — something which Christine herself often advocated.

 

For the year of 2021, this scholarship award will not be awarded because of covid-19. But will resume in 2022.

 

Eligibility & Requirements

  • Applicants must be current teachers of Latin who have at least three years of experience teaching Latin at the middle school/ high school/ community college/ college level and who annually offer the National Latin Exam to their students.
  • Applicants are eligible for the award only once every ten years.
  • If you are currently receiving another scholarship from the National Latin Exam, you are not eligible to apply for this award. If you currently serve on one of the NLE Committees, you are not eligible to apply.

Reward Amount

$5,000 for travel expensive primarily.
