Did You Take Latin in High School? Scholarship Available!


SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
IN CLASSICS at UMD!

The Department of Classics has received a grant from the National Italian American Foundation that has enabled us to fund a number of scholarships for undergraduates. 
They fall into the following specific categories:

FOR LATIN STUDENTS:

Partial tuition scholarships for students who took Latin in high school and who are prepared to continue the study of Latin at the University of Maryland, College Park at the 200 (intermediate) level or above.

A first-year student who has taken high school Latin and who registers for two Latin courses in the first year at Maryland is eligible to apply for a $2000 tuition scholarship ($1000 each semester).
With a total of five courses, you can earn a minor in Latin!


FOR WINTER TERM
STUDY ABROAD IN ITALY:

Scholarships for study abroad in the Classics Department’s 3-credit winter term program in Italy, “Ancient Greek and Roman Culture in Context.”  A number of full and partial scholarships, which may include the cost of airfare, will be awarded annually on a combined need and merit basis with first priority given to majors and minors in Classics and then to majors in related disciplines such as History and Art History.

FOR A ONE-WEEK SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM IN ITALY:


Scholarships for a one-week, one-credit summer study abroad program, related to a semester-long course in Classics (the department’s I-series course, CLAS 289A, “Are We Rome?”).  A number of full and partial scholarships, which may include airfare, will be given for this program annually on a merit basis, with priority given to majors, minors, and students enrolled in the semester course.  (Students may take the summer course independently of the semester course.)
