2015 Spring Scholarships

The Texas Classical Association wants to remind members that applications for three of its scholarships are due in November:

The Gwyn Morgan TCA Professional Scholarship
All teachers and professors are encouraged to apply for the $500 Gwyn Morgan TCA Professional Scholarship. This scholarship is intended to support projects undertaken by members of the association who have at least two years of full-time classroom teaching experience in classical languages or cultures. The project may involve attendance at a course, foreign travel (preferably with some specific goals), the creation of materials, or any other worthwhile activity connected to the teaching of classical languages or cultures. Stress is placed on the contribution of the project to the applicant's future skills as a classics teacher. The applicant must have been an active TCA member for at least two years. The scholarship must be used within one calendar year from receipt. In addition, a report of the recipient's activities or project will be made at the next TCA fall meeting following completion. Recipients will be eligible to reapply after five years. To apply, please complete the appropriate application, attaching an additional sheet to the application if necessary.

Applications Due: Friday, June 29, 2015


The TSJCL Lourania Miller & Gareth Morgan Scholarships for High School Seniors
Two $1000 scholarships named for Lourania Miller and Gareth Morgan are awarded annually by the TSJCL and TCA to qualified high school seniors who are planning to continue their study of Latin and the classics while in college. Students who receive this scholarship must take Latin or Greek their freshman year at college. Enrollment in Latin cannot be at a beginning level. Courses in classical civilization will not be accepted. JCL chapters may only nominate one student each. The chapter which has the TSJCL Latin Student of the Year is ineligible to nominate a member. The teacher of the winning student will be awarded $50 or have the next year's TCA conference fee waived.

The money can be used to defray travel expenses, materials, textbooks, or tuition costs. The scholarship is named in honor of Doris Kays, in memory of her enormous contributions to the TCA and to the teaching of Latin in Texas.
