Alice and Roy E. Leake Scholarship

Each year a $2,000 "Alice and Roy E. Leake Scholarship" will be awarded to a student who is a former participant in Indiana University’s High School Honors Program in Foreign Languages who has been accepted to the Overseas Study Aix-en-Provence Academic Year Program.

Roy and Alice Leake both contributed to the advancement of the study of the French language at Indiana University. Besides his work and research as a professor in the Department of French and Italian, Professor Roy Leake dedicated time and energy to other endeavors and projects in which he was accompanied and supported by his wife, Alice. Together they led the academic year-length Overseas Study Program in Strasbourg (1967-68), and for five consecutive summers (1970 through 1974) the Honors Program for High School Students in St. Brieuc.

Study abroad is like spring training for this century. It helps you develop the fundamentals, the teamwork, and the determination to succeed."

-Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State
