The West Virginia Foreign Language Teachers Association accepts applications annually for the Cemanahuac Educational Community scholarship to study abroad in Cuernavaca Mexico during the summer. This is a Spanish immersion program for West Virginia Spanish teachers. This scholarship focuses on WV Spanish teachers who have had very limited or no opportunity to study abroad in a Spanish speaking country.

Information regarding this opportunity is sent via the WVForLan listserv and posted to our Home page.
