Close Update


While the COVID pandemic has certainly altered the landscape of international student travel and disrupted our communities in difficult and often emotional ways, it has also highlighted our collective need for authentic and meaningful human connection. We are very excited to resume operating our programs in full capacity for the summer of 2022!

In order to confidently run our programs as safely as possible, there’s a few things you should know:

Students who apply to LITA must be finishing 9th through 11th grades in high school and have a minimum of two years of Spanish study.

LITA students have an ability to commit to being a positive member of a small group through new, and at times challenging, cultural and linguistic experiences. They have a true sense of adventure, a keen interest in language acquisition, and a willingness to be outside of their comfort zones in an immersive environment.


Financial Aid

We recognize that the cost of a summer program can be prohibitive to many students and families, and LITA is committed to helping make our summer programs accessible to as many motivated Spanish students as possible. As a smaller program, we are only able to offer financial aid awards to a small percentage of students each summer. However, we encourage all applicants in need of financial assistance to complete our online application for financial aid as well as seek out outside scholarship awards, grants and other financial aid opportunities.

We will use the following timeline for administering financial assistance to applicants:

January 31 - Full financial aid application for summer program is due
February 15 - LITA sends financial aid offer
February 28 - Deadline for student to accept offer

LITA's application for financial aid as well as a list of fundraising resources can be accessed via the individual login portal.

*Financial aid is contingent on acceptance to the program.
