Candidates should be concerned with Spanish studies, such as Spanish art history, Spanish language and literature, Spanish history, geography, or archaeology.

Countries to undertake study or research:

The student must undertake to study in connection with the Instituto de Valencia de Don Juan in Madrid in any subject for which facilities are provided.
