Scholarships and Research

The Johanna W. Mitchell Award in Classics  

The Johanna W. Mitchell Undergraduate Research Fund

Johanna W. Mitchell was a life-long lover of the Latin language, and she was blessed with some very good friends.  When Ms. Mitchell passed away, her friends were looking for a suitable way to honor her, and they decided to establish a scholarship fund in her honor at Austin Peay State University where one of those good friends of hers is a faculty member.  The award was established in 2005 and the first recipient was Mr. Robert Lusk in 2006.  I am grateful to the friends of Johanna W. Mitchell for their continued support of Classics at Austin Peay.  The award goes to the top rising junior who is majoring in some aspect of Classics. 

More recently a second fund also in Ms. Mitchell’s honor was added to this.  This new fund is designated specifically for undergraduate research.  The student who accepts this award will assist a member of the Classics faculty in an on-going research project that is designed to result in a publication. This student is expected to participate in the undergraduate research forum held in the spring at Austin Peay.

If you would like to donate to either of these funds, please contact Dr. Winters or any one of the Classics faculty, or you may contact the Development Office of the university directly at (931) 221-7127.
