The Society’s Roman Studies Committee makes grants to schools to help promote the teaching of Latin and Roman studies. Most of the grants are awarded for the purchase of textbooks and other books and resources for Roman studies, but the Committee also makes awards to schools and museums organising lectures or study days on Roman themes, especially if they benefit large numbers of children throughout the year, and may be repeated in successive years. The Committee does not offer grants to support one-off school trips or events. Applications from schools planning to start courses in Latin are particularly welcome. Grants usually range from £50 to £600.
The Society does not give grants for the Minimus books as schools may apply direct to the Minimus Project. See their grants page.
The Roman Society is very grateful to the Polonsky Foundation for its support of the Schools' Grants Programme.
Please apply using the application form. Return it by email to the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). There are three closing dates: 1 Feburary, 1 June and 1 November.
Lists of schools awarded grants in previous years are available in alphabetical order and by region:
