National Spanish Exam (NSE)



2019 has been a year of much success for the NSE for our UNY Chapter members. More students signed up to take the test.  We had two junior winners of the travel award to Spain and one senior student won an academic scholarship.

Registration for the 2020 exams will start in April. 


2019 Great News!

Congratulations to the following senior students and their sponsors for being awarded $1000 dollars university scholarship from the National Spanish Exam:

  • Laura Koch and her teacher sponsor Hugh Welfing from Fayetteville-Manlius High School, Syracuse from our Central New York Region.
  • Isabel Ledezma and her teacher sponsor Teresita Barcia from Bethlehem High School, Albany from Eastern New York.

These are the first two prizes in this category awarded by the NSE since the reactivation of an NSE Coordinator in 2017 under the auspices of Upstate New York Chapter AATSP (UNY)

Thanks to all that participated this year and I look forward to seeing more teachers and students next year.
