AATSP-VA SCHOLARSHIP

Each year your Virginia Chapter of the AATSP provides two scholarships to members for summer study.  Each of these scholarships includes full tuition, room, and board, along with some excursions and is offered by the hosting entity.  The Virginia Chapter provides partial support for the international flight. The recipients must be current teachers of Spanish. The deadline for application is February 28, 2020 and the winners will be notified before the end of March.


3 weeks of study at a University in Spain is provided by the Embajada de España Consejería de Educación. This generally takes place at the University of Salamanca, but not always. Housing is in student dormitories. There are local field trips that are part of the course as well as free evening concerts. International air fare of up to $600.00 is provided by the Chapter.
