CANE Educational Programs Discretionary Grants   Recently updated !

Do you have an idea for a student project or personal professional development and your school can’t support it? Consider asking CANE for support. The CANE Educational Programs Discretionary Grants combine the Discretionary Grants and the Educational Programs grants we have offered for some years are now available with one application and on a rolling basis, so you can obtain the funds you need right away. This money is available to you as part of what CANE offers as part of your membership.

In the past, funds have been used by individuals as well as by state and local classical organizations to support such events as annual meetings, workshops, and museum visits. Applicants for funds to support educational programs should include the following information:

·         Name and contact information

·         A brief description of your organization (if applicable)

·         A statement indicating the educational objectives or desired outcomes of the program or event, a description of the intended audience, and the desired amount.

Applications for grants are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis. A majority of grants support events and programs from $200-250 (although grants of up to $500 will be considered).

To apply, please contact the CANE Coordinator of Educational Programs


Teachers at all levels from elementary school through college and university are encouraged to apply.

Call for Papers for 2019 Annual Meeting

As a new autumn approaches, it is time to start thinking about the next CANE Annual Meeting, to take place at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts on 8-9 March 2019. Please submit your paper abstracts and workshop proposals by November 16, 2018 via on this page. Please remember that individual papers are limited to a 15-minute delivery time and workshops must not exceed a one-hour window. I am especially wishing to make next year’s CANE meeting one in which we welcome a plethora of new members and first-time attendees. So, if you are a stalwart member of CANE – first, I thank you! – but please also consider reaching out to your new Latin/Classics teaching colleagues, your advanced graduate students, and maybe that old student of yours that has recently been in touch to let you know that they have followed in your footsteps, to encourage them to join CANE and submit a paper or workshop proposal to the Annual Meeting at Holy Cross. We all have so much to learn from and teach one another. Make this the year you introduce someone new to CANE! –Susan Curry, President
