The scholarships range from $1250 to $2500 for graduated seniors who have excelled in academic, service/spirit, and leadership categories of the JCL while maintaining the highest grades in challenging HS course work. Students write a personal statement that asks them to reflect upon what classics has meant to them on their academic journeys and teachers also provide letters of recommendation that talk about the overall academic and personal character of each applicant.
