Faculty-Led Programs

T&E works directly with both faculty and/or study abroad offices to help institutions provide students with programs that will suit their specific needs regardless of discipline. Read More

Faculty Development Programs

We are committed to the advancement of the faculty of our partnering institutions. We have developed a 2-Week T&E Exclusive Faculty Development Course that offers instruction in cutting edge topics such as the use of technology in the classroom and new and proven methods in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

Site Reviews

As part of the 2-Week T&E Exclusive Faculty Development Course, or as a separate trip, T&E provides a built in site-review component that is noninvasive and provides exposure to key elements of our study abroad programs so that Spanish language faculty/advisors can experience the program as participants in their own T&E program.

How can I get a scholarship?

Travel & Education offers scholarships to faculty that come from institutions that are interested in launching affordable short and long term programs in a traditional Spanish setting. At this time, T&E scholarships offered specifically for Spanish language faculty as part of the T&E Faculty Development Course option (more information here). In order to be considered for scholarship you must submit the following via e-mail by early December for the summer faculty program:

  1. Your current CV and letter explaining why your reasons for requesting and why you should be considered.
  2. A letter from the academic institution with which you are employed confirming your position with them as well as number years employed (minimum 2 yrs). They must also state their support for your intent to launch a study abroad program at their institution through T&E during the following academic term.

If you are not a Spanish language faculty, you may qualify to take part in a 2-day site review that would cover transfers to the program site, accommodation, and meals as well as a personalized tour and program review for the specific dates you choose (here for more information).

Do a lot of students travel abroad?

Each year more than a quarter of a million American students decide to continue their education abroad!

How do I know Salamanca is the best choice?

  2. Spain is the top study abroad destination among Spanish-speaking countries.
