Last year’s grant was for Salamanca, Spain and included tuition, full board accommodation on campus or with a host family (room sharing), transport to and from Madrid-Salamanca, and some extra-curricular activities. Cost of transportation to and from Spain and personal expenses are the responsibility of the recipient.
