Society Farsarotul Financial Awards

The purpose of this financial award is to encourage people to study the culture and history of the Vlachs (also known as Arumanians and Macedo-Romanians), a Romance-speaking population of the southern Balkan Peninsula. Founded in 1903, the Society Farsarotul is the oldest and largest Vlach Society in America.

We offer two annual grants ($1000. each) for students, scholars and professionals engaged in study or other projects concerning the Vlachs specifically and Eastern European Latinity in general. An individual awarded such a grant may not receive it again. Membership in the Society Farsarotul is not required unless the applicant is an undergraduate student. Such students must be registered to attend an accredited American institution of higher education on a full-time basis and must have a major subject of European History, Sociology, Anthropology, Linguistics or Eastern Romance Languages.

Applications must be received by February 1st in order to qualify for grants to be awarded June 1st of the same year (payment will be made by September 1st). If there are no applicants, or if none meets the requirements, no awards will be made that year.

Requirements for undergraduates include the following:

  1. the applicant must demonstrate that at least one parent or grandparent was
    Arumanian;
  2. the applicant must already have completed at least four semesters of full-time study;
  3. the applicant's Grade Point Average must be 3.0 or higher;
  4. the applicant must have letters of reference sent directly to the Society Farsarotul by
    three professors who are personally acquainted with the applicant's work;
  5. the applicant must submit in triplicate a written request of not more than 2,000
    words explaining the reason he/she is requesting the grant, and the planned use of the funds.
  6. the applicant must be a member of the Society Farsarotul.

Requirements for other applicants include:

  1. three reference letters sent to the Society Farsarotul;
