Ancient Greece

THE CLASSICAL COMMITTEE of the Gilbert Murray Trust seeks to promote the study of ancient Greek civilisation, culture and language. It provides recurring support to a number of initiatives, including vacation schools at the British School at Athens and courses on Classical Civilisation and the ancient Greek language.

The Trust contributes each year, along with the British Academy’s Cromer Fund and the Joint Association of Classical Teachers, to bursaries for students attending the Summer School organised by JACT at Bryanston or one of the similar summer schools held in several different centres. It also makes a small number of occasional awards in support of other activities which promote its aims, such as productions of ancient Greek drama, and conferences. In the past, for example, it helped to bring a scholar from Russia to speak at a conference on Ancient Slavery and Abolition held in London.

All applications must be in by 2 April, for consideration in that year.

Applications should be submitted to the Secretary of the Classical Committee, Professor Michael Trapp, Department of Classics, King’s College, Strand, London WC2R 2LS (michael.trapp@kcl.ac.uk).
