Types and number of scholarships

  • Partial scholarship: Tía Tula Colegio de Español covers 50% of the total cost of the Professional Development Program for Teachers of Spanish (550€). Number or partial scholarships: 15 (adjudication by order of receipt of applications).

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 the option "Full scholarship" checked, 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 15 applications for partial scholarship fully completed (payment of a 150€ deposit included**) 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 2021-2022.

* 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: The two applicants with the numbers closest to the winning number in the Spanish National Lottery draw on Saturday, February 12th 2022 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 10000 were the 'winning number' and applicants had been assigned 9997, 9998, 9999, 10001, 10002 and 10003, the order of adjudication would be the following: 10001, 9999, 10002, 9998, 10003, 9997; therefore, in principle, the two scholarships would be assigned to the numbers 10001 and 9999.

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 10002 would be selected).

** A 150€ 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 (550€). 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.


  • Deadline for full scholarships applications: 11th February 2022 (final day).
  • Deadline for partial scholarships applications: One week before the start of the shift you are interested in. Note, however, that partial scholarships are adjudicated as applications are received with the payment of the reserve deposit included, so that the application closing period is usually determined rather by the exhaustion of the 15 scholarships planned partials.

Optional Spanish Culture and Conversation Course

Additional and complementary to the Professional Development Program for Teachers of Spanish, Tía Tula offers a Spanish Culture and Conversation Course to those attendees who want it. 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.
