The Solomon Bluhm Scholars Program
The Solomon Bluhm Scholars Program at Hunter College is designed for high-achieving students who are majoring in Greek, Latin, Greek and Latin, or Classical Studies and also entering their junior year. Candidates with a GPA of 3.5 and above and at least 60 credits will receive financial support to cover the difference between tuition and the financial aid that a student receives from state, federal, or Hunter TAP (excluding loans or work assistance) for no more than four semesters.
Solomon Bluhm Scholars will also have opportunities for research and conference participation and attendance at local cultural and scholarly events/activities relating to Classics.
To apply, please submit the following three documents by March 15, 2017:
- A cover letter expressing your interest in the program and stating your declared Classics major. It should also contain a list, by semester, of the courses you’ve taken in that major; your year in college (e.g., upper sophomore, lower junior); and your contact information.
- A 500-word statement of intent that addresses the questions: Why are you applying for the Bluhm Scholarship? Why have you chosen to major in Classics? And what do you hope to achieve through the Bluhm Scholarship?
- A copy of your transcript.
Applicants will be notified of the decision before the end of the spring semester. Any inquiries are to be directed--and all materials are to be sent-- to Bluhm Scholarship Program Advisor Elizabeth Butterworth (email@example.com).
