The Maureen O'Donnell Scholarship for Academic Excellence

Scholarship Renewal Application

The National Latin Exam is proud to award annually 16 $2,000 scholarships to qualifying high school seniors. Applications for these scholarships are mailed to gold medal winners on the Advanced Latin Prose Exam, the Advanced Latin Poetry Exam, and the Advanced Latin Reading Comprehension Exam. Those who apply and are accepted 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.

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 National Latin Exam at the ACL Institute in June.

The scholarship recipients from 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 are eligible for an additional $2,000 if they continue their study of Latin and/or Greek.
