Batting Scholarship

MaFLA has established a $500.00 scholarship to honor the memory of an outstanding teacher of Latin in Massachusetts. A long-time member of MaFLA, Elaine G. Batting served on MaFLA’s Board of Directors from 1990 until her untimely death in 1994. During her tenure as a teacher of Latin, she received numerous fellowships for both intensive study and travel during the summer and encouraged others to apply for such scholarships by presenting workshops on how to apply for fellowships and grants. Her studies and experiences contributed significantly to the curriculum base in classical languages.

See here for the application form for the Batting travel scholarship ($500) offered by MaFLA.
