Grants for Schools

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 sccessive 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.

How to apply

Applications should be sent to the Secretary, Roman Society, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU to arrive by 1 February, 1 July or 1 November in any year. There is no special application form, but applicants should provide information about the level of their departmental budget, the type of courses taught, and in the case of applications for books, a list of the books wanted with their prices.
