The CLTA offers a variety of awards and scholarships aimed at fostering students and teachers of Greek and Latin.


Brother b.m. dynes award

The Brother B.M. Dynes Award for a senior undergraduate intending to follow a career in Classics teaching. The Award carries a total value of $1000.

Brother Mark Dynes was a member of the Order of Christian Brothers for 59 years, a distinguished classicist and a University medallist in Greek.  His life-long love of teaching inspired his colleagues and students. This award was established jointly by the CLTA and the Order of Christian Brothers. Several recipients of the Award are now employed teaching Classical Languages in Australian schools.

Inquiries can be directed to Heather Powell.

This grant may cover an expenditure unable to be covered by normal funding procedures from school funds.
