Loomis Scholarship in Classics

The Loomis Scholarship in Classics, a generous gift from Kenneth and Kathleen Loomis, parents of Stephen Loomis ’97, was first awarded in January, 2012. It is intended for a student with high financial need and a record of academic excellence, who could not otherwise afford the cost of a Classics interim abroad, either Classics 251 (Classical Studies in Greece) or Classics 253 (Classical Studies in Italy).

Preference is given to students who are pursuing a declared major in Classics, Greek, Latin, Ancient Studies, or Medieval Studies. The scholarship covers the full program fee but not the cost of textbooks.

Students apply for the scholarship as part of their online application for the Classics interim abroad. The application deadline for January, 2019 (Classical Studies in Greece) was May 1, 2018.  Applications for January, 2020 (Classical Studies in Italy) will not be accepted until the spring of 2019.
