Recent participants have come from colleges such as Dartmouth, Barnard, Swarthmore, Smith, and Tufts University.

  • the equivalent of two years of college Spanish with an average grade of a "B" or better,
  • good academic standing, and
  • three letters of recommendation (one from your Spanish professor, one from another language professor, and another from your academic adviser.)

Additional prerequisites:

  • Agreement to abide by all program regulations and instructions from the Resident Director. (Violations can result in immediate termination of a student's participation in the program.)
