This page hopes to serve as a resource for institutions that now offer specific programs and/or funding which promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for underrepresented groups in the field of Classical Studies. The listing below consists of a table showing what each institution offers, with the name of the institution serving as a link to the relevant department’s website and the program/initiative name serving as a link to the relevant funding's website page.

Please note that there are several variables across these programs/initiatives such as:

  • departmental vs institution-wide funding
  • limited to underrepresented groups or available to all applicants (with specific encouragement to apply for underrepresented group applicants)
  • degree program(s).

Applicants should also check eligibility and application deadlines as they may be different from those of the degree program.

Please note that this is a work in progress. We welcome any corrections or additions to this list (email, using the subject heading DEI Programs/Fellowships Update).
