To facilitate and encourage students to deepen their understanding of Spain, the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies offers the Real Colegio Complutense (RCC) Grant for Undergraduate Internships and Research in Spain. The RCC Grant provides Harvard College students funding to conduct senior thesis research or pursue an internship in Spain for eight weeks during summer. RCC Grant Awardees will join a larger cohort of annual CES undergraduate internship and grant recipients as well as benefit from the RCC’s initiatives and network at Harvard and in Spain.

The first recipients of the RCC grants are:

  • Nicholas Colon (Study of Religion, 2019) – Grant for senior thesis entitled Exploring the Spiritual Growth of Young Adults on Pilgrimage in Modern Europe.
  • Jasper Johnston (Psychology, 2020) – Grant for an internship at the United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM) in Barcelona.
