TCA Professional Scholarship

All teachers and professors are greatly encouraged to apply for the $500 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 with 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 the completion. Recipients will be eligible to reapply after five years.

TSJCL Lourania Miller and
Gareth Morgan Scholarships

Two $1000 scholarships named for Lourania Miller and Gareth Morgan are awarded annually by the TSJCL 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.

The TSJCL will only award one scholarship per chapter (i.e., school) each year. This ruling includes recipients of the Belle Gould Scholarship (high score on the Decathlon). Therefore, if one of your students has received the Belle Gould Scholarship, you cannot recommend another of your students for the Miller or Morgan Scholarship. Likewise, you cannot recommend more than one student from your school.
