Scholarship Spotlight

The Magellan Scholarship Program helps to establish high school study abroad scholarships in order to recognize outstanding students who exhibit a dedication to foreign language learning. Mirelle was one of the many recipients of a scholarship to study abroad in Spain. Below she shares how she was determined to make her program a reality.

"My name is Mirelle. I am a senior in California. I received a scholarship to study abroad last year and was able to spend a spectacular month in Spain. During the school year my Spanish AP teacher shared with us the opportunity for scholarships to study abroad in Spain, and I applied right away. With the help of my family, a babysitting job and the contribution from the Magellan scholarship program, I was able to realize a long time dream: travel to Europe for the first time.

I got to use my Spanish full-time, learned about an amazing culture and made new friends and it was all made possible during last summer. This is a program I would repeat in a heartbeat and I would recommend it to any high school student looking to improve their communication skills in Spanish and have the time of their life. I loved my time in Salamanca, my wonderful and caring homestay family, all the activities we had lined up for us everyday, and the time we got to enjoy with other participants. All this is something you can only enjoy while in high school - I imagine study abroad in college. I'm so happy I had this experience before my senior year. –Hasta pronto!"
