Clare Booth Luce Research Scholarship

The Clare Booth Luce Program Women in Science and Engineering invites women to apply for a Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholarship for summer 2014.

DEADLINE: Friday April 4, 2014

Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholarships provide summer research grants to support research activities, including the cost of supplies, professional travel, and on-campus summer housing.

Those eligible to apply for these awards are highly qualified female students in the following majors:

  • Chemistry
  • Computer & Information Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Physics (including Engineering Physics)
  • Environmental Science or Natural Science only if
  • your experience to date demonstrates significant involvement in Chemistry, Computer & Information Sciences, Mathematics, or Physics; and
  • your Clare Boothe Luce research will be mentored by a faculty member in one of these areas.
To be eligible, a student must be a US citizen, but is not eligible if she is intending to pursue further education in the medical sciences (e.g Pre-Med students). Students receiving these awards are expected to present their findings at the undergraduate research symposium/fair of their college.
