National Spanish Examination Scholarships
Scholarship Sponsored by National Spanish Examinations
Pursuant to its mission, the National Spanish Examination (NSE), a program of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), is committed to recognizing student achievement and promoting language proficiency in the studies of Spanish and Portuguese. To this end, the NSE will offer scholarships of $1,000 to graduating seniors in 2022 to support their post-secondary educational expenses.
For this scholarship, applicants must:
A) Be a graduating senior that has scored at or above the 75th percentile on the 2019/20 or 2020/21 NSE/NPE.
B) If you are a graduating senior that was unable to take the NSE/NPE due to availability and you take the NSE/NPE in the 2021/22 academic year AND score at or above the 95th percentile (Level II or above), you are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Note: One student per teacher may apply and teachers must select an applicant from their own school. Students may apply for scholarships from the SHH (NSE’s sister organization) in addition to the NSE, but they may only be awarded ONE scholarship.If a student does not attend a tertiary educational facility immediately following graduation from high school, the scholarship will be forfeited.
