Types and number of scholarships

There are two types of scholarships:

  • Full scholarship: Tía Tula Colegio de Español covers 100% of the total cost of the Professional Development Program for Teachers of Spanish (1070 Euros). Number of full scholarships: 2.
  • Partial scholarship: Tía Tula Colegio de Español covers 50% of the total cost of the Professional Development Program for Teachers of Spanish (535 Euros). Number or partial scholarships: 20.

How to apply and how the scholarships will be granted?

To apply for a scholarship, just complete and submit the Scholarship application form below.

With this application, you will participate in the raffle of the 2 full scholarships of the Program*. With the option “Partial scholarship” also checked in the application form (in “Type of scholarship requested”, section on the top), you will be expressing your interest in the partial scholarship too for the case of not winning a full scholarship. The partial scholarships will be granted on a first-signed, first-served basis: first 20 applications for partial scholarship fully completed will get the spot**.

After Tía Tula’s confirmation of a full or partial scholarship, the applicant will have 15 days to send Tía Tula a letter from his/her educational institution, proving being a teacher of Spanish for the course year 2019.

* Raffle of the 2 full scholarships of the Program

The raffle will take place in the following manner: each applicant will receive a randomly selected number between 0 and 99999 (lowest and highest number in the Spanish National Lottery: https://www.loteriasyapuestas.es/es/loteria-nacional). The two applicants with the numbers closest to the winning number in the Spanish National Lottery draw on Saturday, July 20th 2019 will be granted a full scholarship. Should two applicants have two numbers equidistant from the 'winning number', the highest of the two numbers will have precedence. For example, if 10,000 were the 'winning number' and applicants had been assigned 9997, 9998, 9999, 10001, 10002 and 10003, the following applicants would be selected (in this order): 10001, 9999, 10002, 9998, 10003.

Should a successful applicant reject the scholarship offer, the applicant holding the next closest number will be selected as a replacement (in the above example, applicant 9997 would be selected).

**To complete the application for a partial scholarship, a 150 Euros deposit is required to confirm the reservation of a partial scholarship; this deposit will be subtracted of the payment of the complementary part to the scholarship (535 Euros). The deposit will not be refundable if the student decides to cancel his / her spot at the end: only if a person who has obtained a partial scholarship wins the raffle of a full scholarship, this deposit will be refunded.

Deadlines

Deadline for the applications: 18th July 2019 (final day).

Deadline for the partial scholarship application for the first shift (October 6th to 12th 2019): 6th September 2019 (final day).

Optional Spanish Culture and Conversation Course

This optional course, takes place one hour each day, complements perfectly with the Methodology Course (which is essentially focused in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language), and it has a cost of 150 Euros.
