The Crake Lectureship in Classical Studies
The Department of Classics and the Crake Foundation annually invite a distinguished scholar to give a public lecture on a subject drawn from the cultures of Greece and Rome.
In October 2016, the lecture was given by Dr Brad Inwood of Yale University.
The Crake Doctoral Fellowship in Classics
This fellowship is awarded annually to a graduate student who can reasonably be expected to finish their doctorate in Classics during the year of tenure. The holder is asked to teach the equivalent of six credits and give a public lecture.
Our Crake Doctoral Fellow in Classics for 2016-17 was Chelsea Gardner (seen right). In March, she presented her lecture titled "Show Me The Mani: Caves, Pirates, & Death in Greek Antiquity" at the Owens Art Gallery.
The Fellow for the 2017-18 academic year will be Simeon Ehrlich from Stanford University.
The Crake Travelling Scholarship For Summer Study in Greece or Italy
This scholarship is awarded annually to a second or third year student in Classics at Mount Allison. The award has an approximate value of $6000 and covers the cost of return airfare, room and board, and tuition for a summer programme recognized by the Department of Classics. Qualified students should consult the Head of the Department before the end of the Fall term.
