Number of Grants:

Up to two winners will be chosen.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Winners will receive a cash prize of $500, airfare to either the SCS virtual Annual meeting in January 2022 in San Francisco, the 2022 ACL Institute in Charleston or, the CAC 2022 meeting (location and date TBA), and two nights’ accommodation at the corresponding convention hotel. In addition, each winner’s institution will receive $200 to purchase educational resources selected by the winner.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

- Teachers, full- or part-time, of grades K-12 in schools in the United States and Canada who at the time of the application teach at least one class of Latin, Greek, or classics at the K-12 level, and have taught for a minimum of five years, are eligible.

- No previous winner of this award is eligible to apply for it a second time. Candidates will be eligible for consideration for two consecutive years and unsuccessful dossiers may be revised and resubmitted again five years after the first submission.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for the receipt of complete dossiers is November 1, 2021.

Every effort will be made to inform winners in a timely manner to allow for travel arrangements.

Membership in the SCS is not required.

The key to a successful submission is detailed information about the candidate's teaching practices and results. Because all candidates are usually highly qualified, letters and statements must move far beyond general affirmations that the candidate is an excellent teacher and provide demonstrable results.

The winners will be honored at both the SCS and ACL, and they may select the meeting at which they wish to receive the award.
