Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards

The Swift/Longacre/Scaife Fellowship

The Swift/Longacre/Scaife Fellowship, named after long-serving UK Classics professor Louis Swift, long-serving Georgetown College professor Ruth Longacre, responsible for sending so many Latin teachers to Kentucky schools, and Digital Classics pioneer Ross Scaife from the UK Classics faculty, whose brilliant career was tragically cut short.  This fellowship - amounting to several thousand dollars - is awarded to a graduate student in Classics for a year of study.  The awardee alternates each year between a student planning to go on to PhD studies in Classics after his or her time at UK, and a student planning to go into teaching Latin in schools.
