Why we need your support
The CANES Department is dedicated to the study of classical antiquity in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. We are foundational to the university’s mission of rigorous and interdisciplinary training in the humanities. Our undergraduates are teaching in Wisconsin schools. Others are admitted to top programs for graduate study across the nation. Our doctoral students earn tenure-track positions at renowned colleges and universities. Gifts to CANES support our commitment to broaden the reach of our teaching and research and include diverse scholars and students in the future of our discipline.
How gifts make a difference
Your donation to the Ruth Miller Kuhlman Scholarship Fund supports undergraduate travel (e.g., to archaeological digs) and research. These opportunities enhance the educational experiences of our undergraduate students, allowing them to participate in the vital educational mission of our department. With your help, our department can offset the cost of undergraduate education for students in our programs and attract students from historically under-represented groups to our field
