Scholarships for Spanish Speakers|
The people that have gotten scholarships for knowing Spanish also had to know how to apply. Here is where we show you how to apply for—and earn—a full Spanish language scholarship by following a few key steps that most other applicants either don’t know about or simply can’t be bothered to take. Many folks throw their hands up way too early in the process, imagining that free money is too good to be true. It’s not. A bunch of our students have earned Spanish speaking scholarships simply by putting in a little time and effort which, after all is said and done, is more than worth it.
Fortunately, the process can be incredibly easy, straightforward and will yield good results if you remember that it’s a numbers game, and the more time you put in, the more you dramatically increase your chances of attaining one of these becas para hispanohablantes.
It’s true. Even if you take just one afternoon to sit down and spend a few hours in front of the computer researching scholarships open for Spanish speakers, applying and hitting “send”, you will already be doing more work than about 90% of the other applicants, who give up after filling out one or two forms, claiming that it’s way too hard. It’s not that hard. Yes, it’s work like anything else, but the payoff is immense. Like we just said, it’s a numbers game. If you spend 10 hours, which for most is unheard of, so let’s say even five hours filling out applications and sending them in, and you snag a thousand dollar scholarship (which is relatively small, but we’re just using that number as an example) well, do the math. Five hours of easy work = $1,000. That’s two hundred dollars an hour. And likely much, much more. Remember you will eventually get a scholarship if you follow this one basic step: don’t be lazy.
Also, here’s one more basic rule that will set you miles apart from other students looking for the same types of becas, grants and scholarships for Spanish speakers that you are: when researching, don’t limit yourself to Spanish-language Web sites, newsletters, magazines, message boards and other scholarship applications. Search, list and apply for the scholarships advertised in English too, because as strange as it may sound, many of the scholarships for Spanish speaking people are also listed in English-language publications. We won’t go into all the reasons for this, but suffice it to say that while the same fund may be published in Spanish-language periodicals as well, those publications may be harder to access, or too obscure for you to know about and find, so the funders place ads in more widely-read blogs and sites, knowing that upwardly mobile Spanish speakers like you are also fluent in English. So don’t be left out. If you cast a wider net that includes English-language postings (such as the page you are reading right now, and the Spanish scholarships listed right here, for instance) you are much more likely to find a higher number of opportunities leading, ultimately, to the best scholarship open for Spanish speaker applicants like you. If you’re looking to find and attain scholarships for Spanish speaking people, this is how you do it. Now what are you waiting for?
