Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Scholarship for Women in Science

The Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Program strives to increase the participation of women in the sciences and engineering at every level of higher education and to serve as a catalyst for colleges and universities to be proactive in their own efforts towards this goal. A Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship strives to remove financial, social and professional barriers faced by students in engineering fields.

Fordham University has been given a grant from the Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship Fund to award scholarships each year to outstanding sophomore women who are majoring in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics or computer science, and who are not planning medical careers. The scholarship fund was set up by Mrs. Luce in her will in order to encourage women to enter those math and science fields in which they have not been well represented.
