Students often ask me about scholarships. There are 4 that I know of for Latin:
- National Latin Exam scholarships. Students who receive a gold award on the National Latin Exam who are seniors will receive info in the mail.
- Foreign Language Educators of New Jersey scholarships. I am a member of this organization and I welcome Latin 4 students to try out for this opportunity. There will be a picture prompt and students will have to write in Latin and thus evaluated on grammar, use of vocabulary, etc. Deadline to apply for this falls in December, so be prompt!
- Junior Classical League scholarship: your child has to be a member of the Junior Classical League and there are certain requirements such as taking classics courses in college or desiring to be a Latin teacher. There are state scholarships that you interview for at state convention. There are also national scholarships.
- JCL honor society: there are also scholarships just for honor society members.
- CAAS scholarship (Classical Association of Atlantic States): up to $5,000 available for classical summer study! Please have your children look into this for our trip abroad or for JCL nationals! Due by DECEMBER 15th!
- PLEASE have your seniors ask me about these and I will help them with requirements. Sooner rather than later!
