Vergilian Society - Contests, Tours & Symposia 2023

The Vergilian Society offers multiple experiences for Latin teachers of all levels. The purpose of this Society is to promote the study of Vergil by means of lectures, conferences, publications, and reports of excavation that have a bearing upon Vergil’s works. Membership is open to any person who is interested in the study of Vergil.

The society offers a number of tours in the summer from their base at the Villa Vergiliana on the Bay of Naples. According to their site, "Vergilian Society tours are designed to appeal to the needs of a wide range of travelers including high school and college students and instructors; they are particularly suitable for instructors bringing a group of students. We specifically welcome nonprofessionals interested in the ancient Mediterranean."

Also: The Vergilian Society offers a yearly symposium.  Check their site for 2023 offerings.


Each year the Institute offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate Latin and Classics courses. The program is designed especially for Latin teachers who wish to continue their education or earn a Masters degree in Latin on a summers-only basis (requirements for the M.A. can be completed in four summers), including one summer in Rome or at an archaeological site. In place of a thesis, students write a teaching project similar to a short textbook.

For more information, visit their website or email to classics@uga.edu.

Deadline: usually April 1 for applicants from the US; 6 weeks earlier for overseas applicants.

Society for Classical Studies Coffin Fellowship for Travel in Classical Lands

The David D. and Rosemary H. Fellowship for Travel in Classical Lands is intended to recognize secondary-school teachers of Greek or Latin who are as dedicated to their students as the Coffins themselves by giving them the opportunity to enrich their teaching and their lives through direct acquaintance with the classical world. It will support study in classical lands (not limited to Greece and Italy); the recipient may use it to attend an educational program in (e.g. American Academy, American School) or to undertake an individual plan of study or research. It may be used either for summer study or during a sabbatical leave, and it may be used to supplement other awards or prizes.

Candidates for the Fellowship must have been teaching Latin or Ancient Greek at the secondary level (grades 9-12) in North America as a significant part of their academic responsibilities for three years out of the five prior to the award. Membership in the SCS is not a requirement for application, although it is expected that applicants will have demonstrated an active interest in the profession and in their own professional development. Selection will be made on the basis of written applications by the Coffin Fellowship Committee. The amount of the award for 2023 has yet to be announced; for 2022 it was $3500.  Recipients of the award will be expected to file a written report on their use of the Fellowship, which the Society may include in one of its publications.
