With the hard work, dedication and the continuous support of the BSS’ Board, BSS Members and our Principal Supporters, we have given in the last 10 years, over 60 grants with close to £350,000 deployed into underpinning education and research to Spanish and British Postgraduates, aiming to support individual and institutional links between the two countries (more information at britishspanishsociety.org/scholarships).
