Clare Boothe Luce Summer Research Scholarship

Project Summary:
The Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Program was established to encourage women to enter, study, graduate and prepare for careers in teaching and research in science, mathematics and technological fields in which they have historically been underrepresented. Since its first grants in 1989 the Clare Boothe Luce Program has become one of the single most significant sources of private support for women in science, mathematics and engineering. Under this program, St. John’s University is able to provide a limited number of competitive summer research scholarships to outstanding female undergraduates in the sciences. Summer Undergraduate Student Awards require a faculty mentor.

Applications are open to highly qualified full-time female students, who are US citizens and not intending to pursue further education in the medical sciences (e.g. premed, dental, pharmacy, physician assistant students), in the following majors:
• chemistry
• computer and information science
• mathematics
• physics
• biology
• toxicology

In accepting the award, the student agrees to:
• continue in her major
• maintain a 3.5 GPA
• continue research in her field
• write a report by September 1
• report the following April on outcomes of her research during the year
• after graduating give a five-year follow-up report on career and educational achievements

In addition to basic personal information, the application should include a brief explanation of your plans after you graduate from SJU, letters of recommendation from two SJU faculty members, a personal essay, a research narrative, a budget for your project, your CV or resume, and an unofficial transcript.

The application submission deadline (including all required material, attachments, and recommendations) is Monday, May 22, at 4 p.m. to: Women in Science, Newman Hall room 106
