Classical Studies Scholarship
The Classical Studies Scholarship recognizes academically outstanding students committed to classical studies. Scholarships cover up to full tuition for four years and are awarded based on need. Scholarship students must maintain a 3.3 grade point average or higher while earning at least 32 credits per year. Recipients are also eligible for a $1,500 stipend for classics-related summer programs (e.g. archaeological excavations, American School at Athens/Rome, language study) following their sophomore or junior year. Transfer students are also eligible for Classical Studies Scholarship funding.

Summer Awards in Classical Studies
Thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to support qualified students wishing to undertake additional study intended to enrich their understanding of the ancient Mediterranean world. This might take the form of additional summer language programs in Greek or Latin, archaeological field schools, or other summer programs in the US or abroad related to study of the Classics (In some cases, programs during January intersession may be eligible for support as well). Applicants for this award must have at least a 3.3 grade point average and a demonstrated interest in Classical Studies.
Summer Opportunities for Classics Students
Below are some of the programs with which we are familiar and which Bard students have attended in the past. Please inform us if you have suggestions to add to the list.
