I learned to take care of myself, budget, and most importantly appreciate another culture and speak Spanish! It was totally worth it. I have an entirely different view of everything now.

Semester: Internships focus upon practical experience in a local business, while service learning projects focus on engagement in the local culture through community service in a local organization. The curricula of the Alicante Internship programs are centered around your individual work experience. Complementary courses help you to work through the linguistic and cultural challenges you may run into while in the field
Summer: In this 8-week internship period, aligned with the two Summer Terms, you complete an intensive internship or service learning project with access to Spanish Studies Abroad sponsored study tours, cultural events, and other social activities. A 1-credit language training course helps you gain the linguistic tools necessary to integrate into Spanish work culture.
We offer two scholarship options for students attending our regular academic programs in Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Argentina (this does not include faculty-led programs). You may submit an application to only one scholarship: Merit-Based or Diversity. Students may apply for the Merit-Based or Diversity Scholarship prior to their acceptance in an SSA program, but only accepted students may receive a scholarship. *Please note: Spanish Studies Abroad Scholarships cannot be applied to program costs, including tuition. Scholarships are meant to offset extra expenses while abroad, such as flights, gifts, entertainment, etc.
