2017-2018 Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholars Announced

March 22, 2017

The Office of Arts & Sciences is pleased to announce the undergraduate students who have been selected to receive a Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholar award for the 2017-2018 academic year. Since its inception in 1989, the Clare Boothe Luce Program has been one of the most significant sources of support for women seeking to study science, engineering, and mathematics. These awards recognize the students’ academic accomplishments and provide them with the opportunity to deepen their education by working on a research project in computer science, mathematical sciences, physics, or robotics. Each student will work closely with a Luce faculty mentor throughout the award and a research advisor.
