To fund these programs the Society uses income derived from the following contributions to its Research and Teaching Endowment and matching grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities: a major gift from an anonymous donor, a contribution from the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS), and donations to the Friends of Zeph Stewart Fund. Winners of these awards will be selected by a subcommittee of the Joint Committee on the Classics in American Education, whose membership is selected from both the SCS and the American Classical League.
