NUI collaborates with the Spanish Embassy in Ireland and Junta de Castilla y León in Spain, to offer prizes for proficiency in Spanish to students in each of the NUI constituent universities. The prizes are awarded to the top students on honours bachelors’ degree programmes in each of the NUI constituent universities and are based on the results of the final year examinations in Spanish.

These prizes offer each recipient a week-long Spanish language course in the Castilla y León region of Spain, accommodation and meals, a cash prize and more. The Schools and Departments of Spanish in each of the NUI constituent universities will be contacted in summer 2020 to nominate the top students in the final year of their BA programmes in Spanish for these awards.
