Each year CAAS offers its members grant money to strengthen the teaching of and foster public support for the languages, civilizations, and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome.
Resource: Grants of up to $300 are awarded to individual educators to use to enhance or promote their local programs. Such grants can be used for supplies, purchasing publications, field trips, or speakers.
Professional Development: Grants of up to $500 are awarded to individual educators to attend any program, workshop, or meeting (other than CAAS's own meeting) which has as a stated goal the improvement or expansion of the instructor’s skills as a teacher. While proposals with substantial components of teaching and learning in the Classics are encouraged, the experience need not be solely classics-related, but should provide skills that can have a direct effect on the classroom environment. The money may be used to cover tuition/fees, books, travel and meals (mileage and food reimbursed at the IRS level).
Program: Larger grants underwrite programs that encourage the study and understanding of the Classics and classical civilization among a wider audience within the CAAS region, e.g., performances, publications, special gatherings or series.
The Grants Committee will review all applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, awarding grants based upon their merit and as funding is available.
