Linda S. Montross New Latin Educators Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by National Latin Exam
The National Latin Exam is proud to award annually 16 $2,000 scholarships to qualifying high school seniors.

Those who apply and are accepted must agree to take at least one course per semester of Latin or classical Greek in their first year of college. A course in classics translation does not meet this requirement.

B) The application deadline is February 15th.
C) Each scholarship is renewable for however long the recipient is a student enrolled in a bachelor's or master's degree program with the intention of teaching Latin at the K-12 level. The maximum funding is four years for a bachelor's degree and two years for a master's degree (exceptions at the discretion of the scholarship committee).
D) The NLE will cover the cost of attending one American Classical League Institute occurring from the end of their junior year in college through their third year of teaching. For more information on this conference see https://aclclassics.org/.
