The Department expects to be able to continue for another year the Hogan Prize in Classical Studies, made possible by a bequest by William Johnson Hogan, distinguished alumnus of the College. For the academic year 2011-2012, there will be available a grant of $1000 for an entering student who will have completed with distinction at least three years of Latin or Greek at the time of high school graduation. Application forms and further information can be requested after the first of December from:
Professor John Donahue
Department of Classical Studies
The College of William and Mary
P.O. Box 8795
Williamsburg, VA 23187-8795
Deadline for receipt of completed applications is March 1, 2012. The successful applicant will be notified around April 1, 2012. This award is, of course, contingent upon successful admission to the College. The grantee will be expected to enroll during his or her freshman year in at least three courses offered by the Department of Classical Studies (two of these must be in Greek or Latin). The grant may be continued during the sophomore year and beyond if the student earns a grade of "A" or "B" in courses taken in the freshman year and elects to continue the study of Greek or Latin after that. Preferences will be given to applicants who contemplate a concentration in the Department of Classical Studies.Download an application: [PDF] or [DOC].
