Support the Institute

The generosity of the friends and alumni of the Institute has allowed dozens of worthy students to train at the institute, regardless of their financial circumstances. As tuition and the cost of living in the New York City area continue to rise, the need for financial aid only grows greater.

The Hansen Prize

In honor of Hardy Hansen, the institute's director from 1993 to 2013, the institute is establishing the Hansen Prize, a competitive prize that will award a cost-of-living stipend to exceptional students at the institute. The new Hansen Prize, when paired with a tuition scholarship from the Floyd L. Moreland Fund, will enable students of merit to pursue summer-long study of Latin or Greek in New York City.

All alumni and friends are invited to celebrate Hardy's contributions to the institute and the Classics Department at Brooklyn College at a special fundraising event this spring. The event will take place on Thursday, May 1, 2014, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., in Midtown Manhattan. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. For more details or to RSVP, please e-mail Katherine Lu Hsu.

Contributions to the Hansen Prize are tax-deductible. Checks should be made payable to the "Brooklyn College Foundation" with "Hansen Prize" in the memo line; they can be mailed to the Brooklyn College Foundation:

The Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship Fund

The Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship Fund, supported entirely by private contributions, offers partial tuition scholarship for Institute students with demonstrated need. Every year, the fund enables truly superb students to attend the institute. One such recipient of a tuition scholarship, Katherine Dennis, became a student in Basic Greek in 2013; she reports discovering "that not only do I enjoy Greek as much as I do Latin, but also that with hard work I have an ability for it. I learned more than I thought was possible and made great friends and contacts with similar interests. Although the program was certainly difficult, I absolutely appreciate the opportunity that was afforded to me and am so grateful."

All contributions will be gratefully acknowledged on this website and in the annual newsletter. Checks should be made payable to "CUNY Graduate School" with "Latin/Greek Institute" in the memo line. Please send contributions to:
