Grove E. Barber Prize

The Department of Classics and Religious Studies, under the terms of the will of the late Professor Grove E. Barber, annually (in the Spring semester) conducts a contest among students at a certain level in Latin or in Greek for the awarding of a cash prize to the top contestant in each language. Students must:

  • be enrolled in the university, either in an undergraduate or graduate degree program in the study of Classical languages or of Classical archaeology.
  • have taken at least one Latin course (for the Latin translation exam) or one Greek course (for the Greek translation exam) at the university to be eligible.
  • have passed or be currently enrolled in the fourth semester of Latin (LATN 302 or 304) or Greek (GREK 302) or the equivalent (i.e., any LATN or GREK 400-level course).

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.
