UCLA Classics Postbacc Scholarship

Published: April 8, 2023

The Department of Classics at UCLA is pleased to announce the following opportunity designed to advance our goals of diversity and inclusion. We are offering a one-year tuition scholarship for our post-baccalaureate program in Classics for the academic year 2023-2024, designed to benefit a promising candidate for graduate work who needs an extra year of preparation in the ancient languages before applying to graduate programs in Classical Studies.  Members of groups who contribute to the University’s diversity—including members of groups that have been historically and are presently underrepresented in the academy (e.g., first-generation college students, graduates of HBCUs, racial and ethnic minorities and individuals from low income backgrounds) are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants should have completed a bachelor’s program or equivalent in Classics or a related field and must be legally authorized to work/study in the United States at the time of submitting the application.

Interested candidates should submit at their earliest convenience (1) a letter of application for the scholarship to Classics post-baccalaureate advisor, Professor Sarah Morris (sarahm@humnet.ucla.edu), (2) a resume/CV, and (3) an application to our post-baccalaureate program (https://www.uclaextension.edu/languages/languages/certificate/post-baccalaureate-program-classics).  The letter of application should lay out the circumstances that make them a good candidate for the scholarship and outline their plans for future graduate study in Classical Studies. Candidates who have already applied to the post-baccalaureate program should submit only items (1) and (2). The deadline is March 1, 2024.
