The Rumpakis/Dussin Classics Research Fund
Funded by the Department of Classic's Rumpakis/Dussin endowment, this research fund is meant to enhance research and educational opportunities for Classics majors by providing modest support for attendant expenses.
The funds may be used to support:
- the study of ancient Greek both in the US and abroad or
- participation on a dig or in a field school focused on the study of Greek material.
Students must be declared Classics majors who are not graduating in the spring.
Students should work with their advisers to prepare a brief proposal of no more than 1000 words that includes the following elements:
- The rationale for the project and its relevance to your coursework, thesis, or future work in Classics;
- The preparation (if relevant) that you have undertaken for this project;
- The desired educational outcomes of this experience and their relevance to your studies;
- Contact information (including names, telephone numbers, email addresses, etc.) for your host organization;
Your project proposal should be accompanied by:
- A confidential letter of support from a Reed faculty member who can speak to your qualifications, emailed to Anne Ha (email@example.com);
- Budget form (PDF fillable form).
Applications are due by email to Anne Ha (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of the third week of February. The Classics Department strongly encourages applicants to apply to college-wide funding sources so that we may maximize the number of student projects that we support.
In the event that a research or learning opportunity arises after this deadline, the Classics Department encourages students to contact Ellen Millender (email@example.com) to see if there are remaining funds. If so, we ask them to complete the standard application process outlined above. In this event, we will take applications on a rolling basis.
Recipients will be asked to:
- Provide a brief (max one page) report on your summer activities by September 15 to Ellen Millender (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Give a brief oral presentation detailing their experiences at a Classics symposium in the academic year after their summer learning or research opportunity.
