The Classical Association of the Middle West and South sponsors two Manson A. Stewart Awards for primary-, middle-, and secondary-school teachers. Recipients must be members of CAMWS.
Teacher Training Awards: Designed to provide
some financial assistance to those who wish to obtain certification to
teach Latin at the primary through the secondary level, whether the
specific courses are needed in Latin or in Education. The award is not
intended to cover all costs of the training, and the size of the award
varies according to the actual costs (primarily tuition and travel), the
size of the committee's budget, and the number of applications. Previous
awards have been as high as $1250.
Travel Awards: Designed specifically to assist teachers of Latin with a cash award to offset the costs of attending CAMWS meetings. The award is not intended to cover all costs of the travel, and the size of the award varies according to the actual costs the travel will entail, the size of the committee's budget, and the number of applications. Awards for travel to annual meetings have ranged from $300 to $700; for travel to the Southern Section meeting, somewhat less.
