Bursaries for Summer Courses in Greek and Latin (Summer 2023)

To support this bursary, please 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 the study of Ancient Greek and Latin by students from groups currently under-represented in the field (e.g., on the basis of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status). We are offering bursaries to cover tuition for language courses ($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 LAT 101, GRK 101, and GRK 201.
In the second summer term, starting in July and running through mid-August, we offer LAT 102, GRK 102, and GRK 202.
If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please send by March 17, 2023 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 tell us what courses you plan to enrol for and why you are eager to take them. In addition, please include a few lines explaining your eligibility for this bursary and how it will help you to achieve your ambitions. 
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): 
Woodsworth College also has limited accommodation spaces for visiting students; please find information about that through the Woodsworth College website:
