The City: Madrid possesses modern infrastructure but has still preserved the look and feel of many historic neighborhoods and streets. Home to two-world famous soccer clubs (Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid), Madrid is also one of the most open cities on earth and it doesn't matter where you're from for the oft-heard phrase to ring true: If you're in Madrid, you're from Madrid. You will find in the city a rich mixture of cultures, since besides the native madrileños people from other countries and especially from Latin America have made of Madrid their second hometown.

The University: Universidad Francisco de Vitoria (UFV) is a private, non-profit Catholic University. The University's immediate surroundings and its lush green campus create a learning friendly atmosphere. At the same time, its close proximity to downtown Madrid ensures that the city's very best is just a stone's throw away. This program is eligible for the Gilman Scholarship; Pell Grant recipients should apply online at
