Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholarships

The Latin/Greek Institute has been awarded a transformative $1 million grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to establish the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholarships. The SNF Scholarships, which provide a tuition grant and a living stipend, will expand access to classical language study to students with demonstrated financial need. The beyond-the-intensive approach of the Institute requires that students have no other commitments during the summer, including part-time jobs; the SNF Scholarships will enable students to devote their attention exclusively to studying Latin or Greek. Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholars will also join an extensive community affiliated with and supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. To read the full anouncement, click here.
 
The LGI aims to award approximately 20-25 SNF Scholarships each summer. SNF Scholars will receive a support package tailored to their residency status as in-state or out-of-state students. Tuition grants of up to $3500 may be awarded. Tuition grants will be paid directly to the Brooklyn College Bursar.
 
Interested students must submit an application to the LGI’s programs, plus a separate scholarship application. Students may submit a single application to be considered for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholarships, Floyd L. Moreland Scholarships, and Hardy Hansen Prize.
 
At the conclusion of the program, all Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholars are required to submit a report on their summer at the LGI, including their plans to use Latin or Greek in the future.
