The National Latin Exam is excited to continue its New Latin Educators Scholarship. In keeping with the spirit of inspiring young people to enter the teaching profession, the NLE will give five $2000 scholarships in 2017 to high school seniors or college undergraduates who desire to teach Latin. These scholarships are renewable as long as the recipients are continuing to earn a degree in Latin or classical studies with the intent to teach Latin. Taking the National Latin Exam is not a requirement for this scholarship.
