Each year, one student receives the SPQR Fellowship, a stipend that funds study abroad in Rome. Renowned for art, architecture, fashion, and cuisine, students have much to learn from this vibrant city that mixes the ancient and the modern.
This year, we are asking you to join us in raising funds to support future SPQR Fellows. Our goal is to raise $6,000 in scholarship funds for the SPQR Travel Fellowship towards endowing this scholarship with $25,000 by 2022.
Your gift will have real impact now:
• $25 provides a weekly Metro pass for traveling in Rome
• $50 provides the textbook needed for the course
• $150 covers the cost of a passport and photos
• $800 provides meals for one student during the program
• $1,000 provides round-trip airfare for a student
• $2,500 provides housing for one student

Be sure to note on the check that it is intended for the SPQR Travel Fellowship. If it is postmarked by December 31st, it will still count as a current year gift for tax purposes.

If you give before the end of the calendar year, your gift will be MATCHED 1:1! Three generous donors have offered to match donations up to $3,000. Can you help us turn our $3,000 into $6,000 on the way to our goal?
