Tulane Classical Studies summer grants

Guidelines for applying

The Department of Classical Studies invites undergraduates who are majors in Classical Studies, Latin, and/or Greek and M.A. candidates in Classics at Tulane University to apply for summer funding. The funding can be applied towards summer projects that involve some connection with the ancient Greco-Roman world or towards academic work in Classics during the summer. The amount of the award will usually be between $500 and $1500.

Students who wish to apply should submit a proposal including the following:

1. A project description of 2-3 pages. The proposal should describe the project specifically and discuss how it will contribute to the student's academic goals.

2. A project budget. The budget must detail the costs of the proposed project, including travel, accommodation, tuition, etc.

3. A statement of other sources of funding available for the project. This statement should include other sources for which the student plans to apply.

4. Undergraduates should attach a recent transcript or degree audit (indicating the courses taken and the grades received).

Students with questions about their proposals should consult a member of the department.

Applications should be sent to Prof. Butler by April 15. If you have any questions, contact Prof. Butler, mbutler2-at-tulane.edu.
