NCLG Book Grant For Elementary/Beginning Latin Programs


The NCLG has established a fund for small grants of up to $300 to help beginning Latin programs to purchase books. Applications for the 2015-16 school year will be accepted until April 30, 2015.

A committee will review all applications received by April 30, 2014, and the awardees will be notified by May 15th.  Checks will be issued by May 30th to allow for purchasing before the start of the new school year.  Awardees will be announced at the ACL Institute in June 2015.

If you are an ACL Member or an SCS member, you are eligible to apply.  There is also a requirement that if your grant request is approved, you agree to write a 200 - 300 word article about your program and how it helped to promote the study of Classics.  Articles with photos or lesson ideas may be published in the ACL newsletter or may be posted on the NCLG website.  The link to access the online application can be found here. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact, NCLG Elementary School Chair, Zee Ann Poerio.
