In addition to the great experience and the interaction with students and faculty of Spanish schools, the language assistants receive compensation. Opportunities are limited, depending on the number of schools seeking assistants.

The Spanish Ministry of Education provides native speakers of English an opportunity to share their language and culture in K-12 schools in Spain. Visit this webpage
for further information and to apply. Applications are accepted annually, from November to March, for the following school year.
Grants are one of the most sought after types of aid as – like scholarships – students do not have to pay back these funds after graduation. Grants are awarded based upon a student's financial need and awarded from Saint Louis University and the US Federal and State government. No separate application is required; Students must only complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
prior to March 1st each and every year. Due to the nature of these grants, only US citizens and US permanent residents are eligible to receive them.
