The Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies has announced the next closing date for applications is the 1st July 2017.
The Society makes grants to schools to help promote Latin and Roman studies. Most of the grants are awarded for the purchase of textbooks and other books on Roman topics. The Committee also makes awards to groups and schools and museums organising lectures or study days on Roman themes, and has recently made money available for archaeology fieldwork bursaries.
Schools that have recently been awarded funding include:
Hereford Cathedral School that received funding to run weekly Latin masterclasses.
The Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School Robert which received a grant to help Year 4 pupils study aspects of the Roman invasion and its impact.
Applications from schools planning to start courses in Latin are particularly welcome. Grants usually range from £50 to £500.
