Clare Boothe Luce Application Process
Thirteen educational institutions, specifically designated in Mrs. Luce’s will, receive the income from an initial
allocation in perpetuity.
In addition to these designated institutions, the Selection Committee issues invitations to other institutions of higher education to submit proposals. Those interested in participating in the CBL Program must complete an Information Form. The form requests evidence of the college’s or university’s strength in science and engineering, evidence of its commitment to Mrs. Luce’s vision of increasing the representation of women in these areas, and other statistical information. The completed 2016 Information Form must be received by the Foundation no later than 5PM EST, March 7th for consideration in 2016. Proposals will be invited on the basis of these information form review criteria. Please read the review criteria carefully. If your college or university does not meet the minimum criteria, you should not submit an Information Form.

The most recent available faculty data and degree data derived from the National Science Foundation shows, by field and academic rank, the percentage of women doctoral scientists and engineers employed in four-year colleges and universities by field, and also shows, by field and level, the number of earned degrees conferred on women.
Detailed CBL Program Guidelines are included with the invitation to submit a proposal. They may be viewed here for information purposes, however, only invited proposals will be considered. In general, undergraduate scholarships support up to four students for their last two academic years; sixteen undergraduate research awards; two graduate fellowships for the first two years of a Ph.D.; or five years of beginning tenure track position support (new line item). When grants are announced, institutions have a year to select individual recipients before funding is received. The CBL program continues to pilot test Post-doctoral fellowships (two for two years each).
