There is the American School of Classical Studies at Athens Scholarship program which is a classical studies program in the ancient Greek society that may be of interest to some of your readers. They pay nice scholarship payouts and you get to study overseas in Athens Geece which would be awesome to those who love this old time Greek society. It's not for everyone but a dream come true for some.
