Just saw this announced today, thought folks would be interested, looks like a great opportunity:

"Funded MA Fellowships at Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The Department of Classics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick is pleased to announce fully funded MA fellowships to begin in Fall 2020. The two-year fellowships include tuition remission and an annual stipend of $25,000.

In order to promote innovation and broaden participation in graduate education in Classics, we especially encourage students from groups and backgrounds historically underrepresented in the field to apply.

Applications should be submitted preferably by February 15, 2020, and no later than March 1, 2020.

I just saw this on Twitter the other day; I can point to a few scholars who got their degree from Rutgers on Twitter who know about the program if anyone is interested in talking to them about the Classics department!

The main alum I would point out is David J. Wright: https://twitter.com/rmavirumquecano - I talk to him a lot on Twitter and he's super cool! There are a lot of other folks, too, but he's who I talked to the most about this program.

Also saw this yesterday about a funded MA at Notre Dame!

"The Department of Classics at Notre Dame offers a funded, 2-year M.A. in Classics program, covering the language, literature, history, archaeology, and culture of the Greco-Roman world, as well as its reception.  The chief purpose of our M.A. in Classics is to prepare students for doctoral study in these or other related areas, and we have an excellent record for placing our students in top PhD programs. The program also provides a depth and breadth of exposure to classical antiquity worthwhile in its own right.

Over a dozen regular and concurrent faculty of the Department of Classics offer specialties in a wide range of fields covering Greek and Latin literature, Greek and Roman culture and history, linguistics, archaeology, and material culture from Archaic Greece through Late Antiquity, as well as the reception of antiquity in various forms.

Our students benefit from the rich and round intellectual environment created by strong graduate programs at Notre Dame, such as the M.A. in Early Christian Studies (operated jointly by the Departments of Classics and Theology), the Ph.D. in the Medieval Institute, the Ph.D. in Philosophy (which offers ancient philosophy), the Ph.D. in Political Science (with expertise in ancient political theory), and the M.T.S. and Ph.D. in Theology (with strengths in late antiquity and patristics).  There is also a recently-established group for Byzantine Studies.

For the M.A. in Early Christian Studies, see
https://classics.nd.edu/graduate-students/ma-in-early-christian-studies/

Full tuition scholarships, stipends, and health insurance subsidies are available. We normally admit two to three students per year.

Our application deadline is January 15.

For questions about the program, please direct your inquiries to Prof. David Hernandez, DGS, dhernan2@nd.edu, or to Prof. Luca Grillo, Department Chair, lgrillo@nd.edu .

For questions about details of the application process, please visit the Graduate’s School’s website: http://graduateschool.nd.edu/admissions/"

David Wright is awesome! I follow him, too! I'm glad to see Rutgers is doing this -- even if it means I have a whole other app to finish now lol

Oh, that's awesome! I hope more schools offer funding for their MA programs. I was lucky with Villanova and got the Tuition Scholarship, but I'm not sure how many spots they offer per year, but as a Tuition Scholar, it's only 7 hours per week and tuition/fees are waived.  Still paid for books and materials but a majority of the resources they use are free, I just liked having physical copies of certain works.

Yes! He actually helped me reformat my CV for Fall 2021 PhD applications; he's super! 

Best of luck with your application!
