The John G. Hawthorne Travel Prize

The John G. Hawthorne Travel Prize is awarded to an outstanding undergraduate student of classical languages, literature, or civilization for travel to Greece or Italy or for study of classical materials in other countries. It may be used to pursue a project of the student's own design or to participate in appropriate programs, either:


for travel in Greece and/or Italy, or


for classics-related study in Greece, Italy, or other appropriate locations.

The Prize is expected to be worth $5,000 this year.

The Prize is open to any student who has taken a course with a listing in Greek (GREK), Latin (LATN), or Classical Civilization (CLCV) in the College.

An itinerary or project statement of 2-3 pages, and


A provisional budget, and
