ACL wants to help our members enhance their teaching by encouraging them to travel, take courses, attend professional meetings, and engage in professional development that is concerned with Latin, Greek and the ancient world where these languages prevailed.

Our scholarships honor some of the past leaders of the organization:
Glenn Knudsvig, Arthur Patch McKinlay, Maureen O’Donnell and Ed Phinney.

Donations to the ACL Scholarship fund are always welcome.  Grants for membership are also available.



  • ACL members at all levels of teaching are eligible to apply
  • Must be a member of ACL for at least 3 consecutive years, including this current year and the two preceding years. Undergraduate students, graduate students and new teachers with less than 3 years experience are exempt from the requirement of three consecutive years of membership.
