Close Update

LITA will not be running programs in 2021. Border restrictions, rates of vaccinations in Spain, and our inability to run our programs this summer with the same attention to detail and the same quality have made this decision necessary. We are currently accepting applications for summer 2022 and we anticipate fewer available spots than usual given that many currently enrolled students will be rolling over their matriculation to next summer. We encourage all interested students to consider applying early. Feel free to reach out to Jordan Romm (LITA's director) either via email (jordan@experiencelita.com) or simply begin an application and we will reach out to you.

Con mucho cariño,

La familia LITA

Eligibility

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.
