2018 Phillips Classical Prize & Modern Greek Prize Competition

The Phillips Classical Prizes in Latin & Ancient Greek are a long-standing tradition in the Department of Classical Studies to promote and encourage the study of ancient languages. They originate from an endowed scholarship fund, bequeathed to the Department in the will of Henry Phillips, who died in 1895. The prizes are awarded annually to outstanding undergraduates who, by virtue of a special exam, prove their excellence in the various levels of Latin or Ancient Greek. The Modern Greek Prizes have been awarded annually since 1993 to undergraduate students at intermediate and advanced intermediate levels for excellence demonstrated in Modern Greek translation.

The translation competition is open to current undergraduates. Exams are held Thursday, March 15, 6-8 pm. Exam winners will be honored on Tuesday, April 17 at 4pm in the Hussey Room at the Michigan League. Family members and friends are welcome to attend!

Please register online by March 12th
