NEW CAMS FUNDING FOR STUDY-ABROAD PROGRAMS
To make study-abroad options more accessible to our students, the Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies is making available, effective summer 2014, travel reimbursement funds for all CAMS majors and minors participating in CAMS-sponsored study-abroad programs. After admission to a CAMS study-abroad program (in summer 2014 this includes the Tel Akko field school and the Rome study tour; in 2015 this will include the spring semester in Athens and such CAMS summer programs as are offered), all currently enrolled CAMS majors are eligible for $500, and all currently enrolled CAMS minors for $250, to be applied to receipted program-related travel expenses. This may be applied to the cost of airfare, upon presentation of a purchased airline itinerary. Students may re-apply for such funds for a CAMS program in a subsequent year. Funding may also be available for participation in approved non-CAMS programs related to the ancient Mediterranean world; requests for such funding will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. To receive such travel reimbursements, submit your request to Prof. Mark Munn, Head of CAMS (email@example.com), identifying the program that you are participating in. After verification of your status as a CAMS major or minor, you will be advised how to secure reimbursement.
