Apply for the Clarence Forbes Scholarship

Scholarships for students in classics and religious studies are supported by income from the Grace I. Bridge and Emma C. Steckelberg scholarship funds. Scholarships from these sources also can be awarded to first-year students.


Scholarships can be awarded also to first-year students. Incoming students who are applying for admission should contact the Office of Admissions regarding application for freshman scholarships and all deadlines.

To be considered for need-based federal and state financial assistance, complete the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)" as soon after January 1 of the year in which you are seeking aid as possible. Most federal and state aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so it is important to apply early and submit income tax information as soon after it is requested as possible.

Returning students

Students currently enrolled and with a declared major in Classics and Religious Studies or Classical Languages are eligible for awards. Complete the application available in the department office and return it by February 12.
