MIFLC is pleased to direct this scholarship program honoring Professor Leonor Alvarez de Ulloa, Dalton Distinguished Professor at Radford University, in Radford, Virginia. A professor of Spanish, she is a devoted advocate of Study Abroad and for many years has cooperated with Estudio Sampere to make exciting opportunities available to her students. Those who have studied under her strongly believe that she transforms an ordinary classroom into a dynamic learning environment that engenders appreciation for diverse expressions of human culture. Beyond the classroom, she is a published scholar and is active in many professional organizations. She also held numerous leadership positions with the Mountain Interstate Foreign Language Conference to include President, Editor of the MIFLC Review and Assistant Secretary-Treasurer.
