Eric Park visited Barcelona while attending SMU-in-Spain this fall.

SMU-in-Spain, the University’s longest-running education abroad program, is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Since it was established in 1969, more than 2,000 students have attended the semester- and year-long program. SMU-in-Spain also is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its association with the Fundación José Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, which houses the program. The Foundation recently awarded two undergraduate scholarships for students who qualify academically but need financial assistance to participate, and four scholarships for SMU graduates to continue their study of Spanish language and culture in the Foundation’s graduate program.
