Why would don Quijote give away 20 Spanish courses?by Erin
Here's how we announced our 4th annual Scholarship Programme, launched last week, in our Weekly Lesson newsletter:
We've just launched our 4th annual Fundación don Quijote Scholarship Programme.
First we'll gather great language learning ideas from all corners of the globe. Then we'll award 20 scholarships for 2-week Spanish courses- complete with accommodation - to the 20 educational institutions presenting the best-developed and most innovative plans to promote the study of Spanish as a foreign language.
Why do we it do it?
Because we believe languages form bridges between peoples "and we are passionate about helping the world communicate. Knowledge of Spanish will allow an entire generation to travel, live, and work in Spanish speaking countries" where we hope they'll meet Hispanic cultures as they introduce the locals to their own.
Individual students cannot apply for these scholarships, but if you are a Spanish teacher or study in a high school, university, community college or college, encourage your institution to apply! Give a student from your school the opportunity to study Spanish in Spain or Mexico.
