How to apply
The requirements for the application include
- a brief statement of the nature of your project and the educational benefit you expect to derive from it,
- a realistic estimate of the costs you will incur through the project,
- the approval of your major advisor,
- one letter of recommendation from a member of the Classics Department.
If you are asking for funding for a formal course of study at another institution, or for another program such as an internship or excavation for which there is a selection process, you must include documentation of your acceptance (e.g. a letter or email from the program director). Observe that this may necessitate making your application to that program in advance of their stated deadline. You may find it helpful to email your program director about your plan to apply for funding from Dartmouth Classics and inform them of the application deadline here.
For any project that is eligible for UGAR funding, you must also include a copy of your UGAR application and a note as to the status of that application (i.e. "pending", "amount funded," or "denied"). If your application is still pending, you can follow up with us later to tell us the outcome.
You can download the application form here and fill it out electronically. Completed forms are sent to the chair of the Classics Department by email.
