This college has advanced study of all aspects of Greek culture, from the distant past to the present day. The ASCSA is a teaching college which plays a pivotal role in the circulation of information of Greek history and archaeology since they are very active in Greek archaeological exploration.
If the American School of Classical Studies at Athens sounds appealing, let’s take a closer look at their study abroad scholarships. These ASCSA scholarships are very valuable, and should be considered by all students attending the school or the summer study/seminar program. These Athens scholarships are applied for through the school, and awarded directly by the school. Note that for many ASCSA scholarships, you do not have to be attending the ASCSA School directly, but can be enrolled in an institution that is a cooperating institution of the ASCSA.
The open scholarships that are available at ASCSA includes (five) scholarships, which are typically only available to graduate students who are enrolling in programs of study that include the Greek or Latin Language, or Greek or Latin Literature, history, philosophy. Studies in classical art and archaeology are also considered. These awards cover all fees.
Other Athens scholarships available through the American School of Classical Studies at Athens include the Charles M. Edwards Scholarship, the Rea Silvia Borza Scholarship, the Katherine Keene Scholarship, the ASCSA Alumni Association Scholarship, and the Antony and Isabelle Raubitschek Scholarship.
The Charles M. Edwards Scholarship is awarded to one student who is considered by the scholarship committee to be outstanding and exceptional, and is only awarded in an amount of $500.
The Rea Silvia Borza Scholarship is awarded in the amount of $1500. It is only awarded to a high school teacher of art, literature, history, or another field of study that fits in well with the American School of Classical Studies. It is important to note that teachers of public schools will always be given preference for this particular scholarship award.
The Katherine Keene Scholarship is available for one public high school teacher and covers all fees. It is designated for a teacher of social studies who shows interest and promise in the classics, as they are taught through the ASCSA, as long as that teacher includes those interests in the curriculum that they teach.
The ASCSA Alumni Association Scholarship covers all fees, and the Antony and Isabelle Raubitschek Scholarship awards $1500.
