The Friends of Pylos Fund was established in 1994 to support the activities of the Pylos Regional Archaeological Project. The Department’s work in Pylos has been a staple through the years and has led to significant discoveries, including the 2015 discovery of the Tomb of the Griffin Warrior.  

The Classics Discretionary Fund was established in 2000 to support the greater needs of the Department of Classics. Gifts to this fund allow the department the flexibility to address emerging needs and support faculty, students, and programs. These funds enable creativity and growth within the department as well as the ability to recruit and retain top talent at all levels.

The Centennial Scholars Fund was established in 2015 to support undergraduate scholarships for majors in Classics. Scholarship support aids students in finishing their degrees on time and with less debt, setting them up for increased success following graduation.

The Marion and Dorothy Rawson Classics Fund, established in 1958 by Miss Marion Rawson, supports archaeological excavations and/or scholarships at the discretion of the head of the Department of Classics. Miss Rawson was dedicated to the field of archaeology and not only participated in archaeological excavations alongside Dr. Carl Blegen, but also felt deeply moved to ensure further trips would have financial support and this fund was established to cement that legacy.
