Education Division Scholarships and Awards

Coffin Traveling Fellowship Committee selects an outstanding secondary school Greek and/or Latin teacher to receive a fellowship to study in classical lands (not limited to Greece and Italy).

Committee on Awards for Excellence in Teaching of the Classics reviews nominations and selects up to three recipients annually of the Society's collegiate teaching award.

Joint Committee (with ACL) on the Classics in American Education (JCCAE) works to improve communication and cooperation among all levels of Classics teachers. A subcommittee selects up to two winners of the Society's award for excellence in precollegiate teaching.

Committee on Scholarships for Minority Students oversees the annual selection process and awarding of scholarship assistance to undergraduate minority students and considers ways in which more minorities can be brought into the field.

The Division gives Pedagogy and Teacher Awards to classics teachers at both the collegiate and precollegiate levels.  The Society is able to give these awards as a result of 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 to the SCS's Gatekeeper to Gateway Campaign for the Classics in the 21st Century.  Those gifts were eligible for matching funds from a challenge grant awarded to the Association by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
