Spanish Summer Institute
Dates for the 2020 program will be Sunday, May 10 (*departing the US on Saturday, May 9) - Tuesday, June 16, 2020.
Course of Study
In Madrid students live with Spanish families selected by the Institute and evaluated by previous Washington University participants.
The total cost includes tuition for six Washington University credits, room and board, local and out-of-town excursions, and group cultural activities (visits to museums, theater, etc.). This does not include airfare to and from Spain, local public transportation, books and course materials, or personal spending money. At this time, the total cost is anticipated to be $6,400; drastic changes in the exchange rate may incur an additional modest surcharge to cover program costs.
How to Apply
The application deadline is November 1, 2019.
Please note that your application is not considered complete unless you have completed all of the application, including submitting the following documents: 1) application form, 2) one recommendation letter, 3) language assessment form from your current or former Spanish teacher, and 4) current transcript (not required for freshmen).
Applications received by November 1, 2019 will be given full consideration. After November 1, students will be considered on rolling admissions, as space permits. Professor Sklodowska will contact you for an interview after she has received your completed file. Once accepted (on or around November 20) a non-refundable deposit of $750 will be due by December 6, 2019 to secure your place in the program. A second non-refundable payment of $1,000 will be due by February 14, 2020. A final payment will be billed by April of 2020. In addition to financial support students may be already receiving from the University or other sources, the Department has a limited number of small, competitive awards for students with demonstrated financial needs accepted into the Institute. Important note: financial aid will be based on applications received by November 1. We do not anticipate funds being available for applications received after this deadline.
We strongly urge you to apply for or renew your passport as soon as you accept to participate in the program. It is your obligation to have a valid passport by the end of January 2020. Due to international travel requirements, your passport will need to be valid at least through December 2020 (or six months after your planned return from Spain).
