Undergraduate Studies

The Ashley Crouse Memorial Scholarship

Ashley CrouseThis scholarship was initiated by the Department of Spanish & Portuguese, in memory of Ashley Crouse, to provide partial support to a student planning to study abroad during the summer. Ashley was a double major in Spanish and Political Science and was a student in the LAMP program. She participated in the Indiana University High School Honors program in Valencia, Spain while she was still a student at Carmel High School, and during the summer of 2004 she studied in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Ashley was highly involved in many campus activities, including the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and IU Dance Marathon, which raises funds for Riley Hospital.

Those who wish to make donations to the scholarship fund may do so by sending a check made out to the Indiana University Foundation (write Crouse Fellowship on the check) and sending it to Jane Drake, GISB 2160, Department of Spanish & Portuguese, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405. For more information, please contact Jane Drake (
