This award provides a scholarship grant of up to $17,000 for the 2017-18 academic year to an undergraduate student of superior character, attainments and promise. This student will have completed the sophomore year. The award is meant for a student who aspires to become a college or university professor of the humanities. The donors have specifically mentioned the following preferred subject areas:

(a) Greek
(b) Latin
(c) English language & literature, especially in the periods of Old & Middle English
(d) Philosophy & history, including both ancient and medieval.

Nominees and applicants must be current full-time students in a CUNY senior college. We particularly invite applications and nominations for students who have attended a CUNY 2-year college. We welcome applications and nominations for individuals who were candidates in the earlier competitions.
