2017 Scholarship Program for working teachers of Spanish in the United States of America and Canada


Who are the scholarships available to

The scholarships are meant for teachers of Spanish of secondary or higher education working in academic institutions in the US or Canada where Spanish is taught as a subject, either as a second language or as a complementary language.

Teachers enrolling the program must have a B2 level of Spanish. Please, if you are not sure about your Spanish level, you can take our placement tests.

What the Scholarship Program consists of and what is included

The scholarship consists of a one-week training / perfection / refresher course for teachers of Spanish in Salamanca (Spain), imparted by the Tía Tula faculty, all of whom are specialized in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and Spanish teacher training. This is the ideal program for teachers looking for a professional development course.

Usually, teachers are awarded with professional development credits towards license renewal with this program by their school district. Please, since it depends on district regulations, consult with your school district.

It includes:
  • A one-week training / perfection / refresher course.
  • Accommodation in Salamanca: in private room with full board.
  • Extracurricular activities over the course week. Teachers are invited to participate in the activities.
  • Course completion certificate issued by Tía Tula Colegio de Español as an Instituto Cervantes Accredited Centre in Salamanca (Spain).
  • Travel and medical insurance.

*If you wish to come with a relative or a friend, you can consult the possibilities with us.

Optional Spanish Culture and Conversation Course

Additionally, Tía Tula offers a Spanish Culture and Conversation Course to the attendees in the program. It consists of an oral practice of Spanish to improve the Spanish level of the teachers and the treatment of different topics happening currently in Spain. This optional course takes place one hour each day. It complements perfectly with the Methodology Course, which is essentially focused in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
