Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship Fund

The Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship Fund of the Latin/Greek Institute, supported entirely by contributions from graduates and friends of the institute, offers tuition assistance for Institute students with demonstrated need. A separate scholarship application must be filed, which can be downloaded here.

Filing this form also makes the student eligible for consideration for the Christina M. Dunkle Memorial Scholarship Award. These awards are privately funded and are not administered directly by the City University of New York. All applications with complete supporting materials must be received before April 1, 2015. Incomplete applications will not be considered after that date.

Applicants for the Hardy Hansen Prize must submit a scholarship application and indicate their interest in being considered for the award. Students may use a single application to apply to the Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship Fund and the Hardy Hansen Prize.
