Summer funding & outside awards
The department offers a small number of grants to assist undergraduate majors and graduate students who wish to participate in study abroad and summer programs in the classics. Various outside funding sources are also available. Both undergraduates and graduate M.A. candidates are encouraged to seek outside funding whenever possible.
The Tulane Department of Classical Studies gives grants, typically ranging from $500 to $1500, to qualified Tulane undergraduate majors and graduate students in its department to help defray expenses associated with summer research or study in programs deemed appropriate by the department. To apply for such a grant, students should send a letter, outlining the project or program and a budget, to the department chair. See our guidelines for department summer grant applications.
