Eta Sigma Phi Summer Scholarships

Eligibility Requirements and Application Procedures


Eligible students must be a member of the national Eta Sigma Phi Society.  Local initiation alone is not sufficient.  If you have been initiated at your college or university and have not received a certificate from the national organization, please check that your advisor sent the information to national.


Applicants should complete the application and forward it to the chair of the committee along with an official undergraduate transcript(s) and statement of purpose.  The statement of purpose should include information about their undergraduate career, their involvement in Eta Sigma Phi, and their plans for a career in Classics. Three references from professors who are familiar with applicants' work, especially in Classics, should be sent directly to the chair.  All application materials must be sent by regular mail to the chair of the scholarship committee. The committee uses the following criteria to evaluate applications:  undergraduate GPA, level of involvement in Eta Sigma Phi, future plans in Classics.


In the meantime applicants should apply on their own to the programs in which they are interested.  Please consult the scholarship information sheet for deadlines, addresses and pertinent financial information.  A scholarship from Eta Sigma Phi does NOT ensure a place in these programs! These programs also have their own scholarships for which you may be eligible if you do not receive an Eta Sigma Phi award.
