Undergraduate Scholarships

The Clare Boothe Luce Program of the Henry Luce Foundation supports a limited number of Undergraduate Scholarships for women students in the fields of the Physical and Life Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering, and Computer Science. Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Scholarships will be awarded for up to two academic years to highly qualified female students majoring in the above named fields and in their last two years of study. Applicants must have declared their academic major, and the scholarship will continue only while that major is sustained. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit; however, financial need may be considered as a factor among well-qualified candidates. The scholarship will be calculated to include the cost of tuition, medical insurance, the undergraduate student fee, and standard room and board. An additional allowance of up to $500 may be designated to cover educational and professional development expenses.

It should be noted that, under the conditions of Mrs. Luce’s bequest, students committed to further education in the medical sciences are ineligible for these scholarships. Preference will be given to students in areas where women are most under-represented, and recipients must be U.S. citizens.

Only those qualified students invited by the Provost’s Office may apply for the Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Scholarship. Unsolicited materials will not be accepted.
