Bursaries for Summer Courses in Greek and Latin

The following information is also available as a PDF or DOC file.

To support this bursary, please visit this link and donate to the “Department of Classics Departmental Trust.” Thank you for supporting greater diversity within the field of Classics.  

The Department of Classics is promoting language study by students from underrepresented groups in our summer language courses. We are offering bursaries to cover tuition ($700 per semester course), and for those visiting from outside the Toronto area, up to an additional $1,000 per semester. 

In the first summer term, starting in early May and running through June, we offer LAT101, LAT 201, and GRK 101.

In the second summer term, staring in July and running through mid-August, we offer LAT 102, LAT 202, and GRK 102.

If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please send by March 23rd a cover letter as well as a copy of your university transcript (an unofficial copy is fine) to the Undergraduate Coordinator, Professor Kevin Wilkinson, at:

undergrad.classics@utoronto.ca

In your cover letter please briefly explain your interests in taking Ancient Greek and/or Latin (e.g., academic background, current interests in classical antiquity or related fields, plans for future study). Please also explain in a few sentences in what sense you consider yourself to belong to a group under-represented in the department or the field (e.g., on the basis of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status). We are especially interested in applicants with expressed financial need.

If you are coming from another university in North America or overseas, please see the following link for information about applying and enrolling in courses through Woodsworth College (the online process is straightforward but you will need a Letter of Permission from your own university registrar or study abroad office):
