Since its inception in 2008, the BritishSpanish Society has had the pleasure of awarding Scholarships and Bursaries to over 50 post-graduate students conducting research in fields as diverse as medicine, urban planning, engineering, linguistics, literature, physics, architecture, marine archaeology and music.

The British Spanish Society is pleased to join the UNIVERSITY OF WALES PRESS and Iberian and Latin American Studies Series to support research in Hispanic Studies and to provide a channel among researchers, academia and the Society. This is a unique opportunity for researchers to win a prestigious prize and for their thesis to be considered for publication by an established university press with strong links in Hispanic Studies. For full details, please visit the ‘how to apply’ section.

It may not be the best of times for students but we are trying our best to help where we can. November 2017 saw the X annual presentation of the BritishSpanish Society Scholarship Awards hosted by the Honorary President of the Society, HE the Spanish Ambassador.
