$3,500 in scholarships available for DU Spain study abroad program

A group of Drake students will be joining the DU Spain: Drake Semester in Seville with Professor Ellen Yee for the Spring 2023 semester in Seville, Spain. Students will enroll in one Drake course, as well as courses at a local university. Students don’t need a background in Spanish to participate in the program.

We’re also excited to share that the first 10 students who commit to the program will receive a $500 grant to discount the program, as well as a $3,000 scholarship from our program partner, API. This means the non-tuition fees (room & board, included excursions, and international health insurance) will be under $2,500 for the first 10 students who commit.

Students can meet Professor Ellen Yee at the J-Term Travel Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There will also be a DU Spain Info Session on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 10 a.m.

We recommend that students apply by Thursday, Sept. 1, so they’re considered for a Drake University Global Learning Scholarship. Students need to commit and pay a deposit for the program by Thursday, Sept. 15. Apply here.

Courses taken in Seville can be pre-approved to count toward your major(s), minor(s), concentration, and/or AOIs (with courses offered both in English and in Spanish). Students also have access to their Drake financial aid while studying abroad on this approved program.
