Scholarship Renewal Application 2017 NLE Scholarship Winners

Applications for the $2,000 scholarships are mailed to gold medal winners in Latin III, Latin III-IV Prose, III-IV Poetry, or Latin V-VI who are high school seniors.  Those who apply must agree to take at least one course per semester of Latin or classical Greek in their first year of college.  A course in classics translation does not meet this requirement.

Seniors who win gold medals on the Latin III, III-IV Prose, III-IV Poetry, or the Latin V-VI Exam their senior year are eligible for one of the $2000 scholarships, including one from an anonymous donor. In addition, a $2000 scholarship will be awarded for post graduate study leading to the teaching of Latin and/or Greek at the elementary, intermediate, or high school level. These scholarship awards and those for the National Greek Exam will be announced by NLE Scholarship Chair, Ephy Howard, at the ACL Institute in June.

The scholarship recipients from 2013, 2014, and 2015, are eligible for an additional $2,000 if they continue their study of Latin and/or Greek.
