ONE scholarship available

Program description:

The recipient of the Centro Mundolengua Summer Scholarship has the ability to choose where he/she would like to study. Centro Mundolengua is providing an AP Spanish language and culture program for teachers in Seville, as well as an AP Spanish literature program in Madrid. The scholarship recipient can choose whichever program he/she prefers. In these wonderful historic centers of Spain, teachers can learn about the latest teaching resources, integration of language skills, and AP program goals. These are the only programs for teachers in Spain endorsed by the College Board. Our main goal is to ensure that the recipient of this scholarship learns pertinent information to be brought back and shared with his/her students.

Dates:

The first week consists solely of cultural visits. The second week is a mix of cultural visits and AP workshops.

Package includes:

Thirty hours of AP Spanish development; full room and board; accommodations with a host family in Seville and in a residence in Madrid*; cultural activities; 24-hour support; class materials; College Board certificate.

*Subject to very limited availability. In lieu of a residence stay, participants will receive a credit of 400 euros in cash upon arrival. In this case, they are completely responsible for finding and booking accommodation. Meals are not included. The 400 euros will serve as a stipend for housing + meals.

Other expenses not included:

Airfare, weekend excursions, medical expenses / insurance, graduate credits, nighttime activities (except tapas night and welcome/farewell dinners).

Selection criteria:

Applications are open to high school teachers who are also CLTA members and who are currently teaching AP Spanish Language and Culture or AP Spanish Literature, or who plan to teach either course in the near future.
