Since its first grants in 1989 the Clare Boothe Luce Program (CBL) has become the single most significant source of private support for women in science, mathematics and engineering. Clare Boothe Luce, the widow of Henry R. Luce, was a playwright, journalist, U.S. Ambassador to Italy, and the first woman elected to Congress from Connecticut. In her bequest establishing this program, she sought “to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach” in science, mathematics and engineering.
The program has three categories: 1) undergraduate scholarships and research awards, 2) graduate and post-doctoral fellowships, and 3) term support for tenure-track appointments at the assistant or associate professorship level. All awards must be used exclusively in the United States (not for travel or study abroad). Student recipients must be U.S. citizens and faculty recipients must be citizens or permanent residents. Thus far, the program has supported more than 1500 women.
According to the terms of the bequest, at least fifty percent of the awards go to Roman Catholic colleges or universities. Grants are made only to four-year degree-granting institutions, not directly to individuals.
