Mission Statement

Sociedad Hispana Doylestown is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and approved by the IRS 501(c)(3). The organization is dedicated to the study and appreciation of Iberian and Latin American culture, including the Spanish language, its literature and its arts. Our goal is to promote cross-cultural understanding between the Hispanic and non-Hispanic communities through language, culture, the arts, and community engagement.

In 2012, Sociedad Hispana Doylestown began offering scholarships to local high school students. Each year, we award thousands of dollars to students who have taken the highest level of Spanish at their school and who plan to continue studying Spanish in higher education.

Anyone who meets the criteria outlined in the current scholarship application may apply. Due to the high volume of applicants that we receive, the scholarship process is divided into two rounds: finalist selection and scholarship selection. The first round is based on a written essay, while the second round is based on both a timed writing sample and a series of interviews in Spanish. An awards ceremony is held in May.

 

SHD is very thankful to all its members and sponsors

for providing this scholarship opportunity every year!
