Are you a woman who wishes to conduct research over the summer in the natural sciences or engineering?

The Henry Luce Foundation awards provides up to $12,000 for undergraduate women conducting summer research. The grant covers wages, benefits, supplies and domestic research-related travel (the Luce Foundation does not support international travel).  The award is also renewable for a second summer award providing up to $7,500. Clare Booth Luce Research Scholar awards are for undergraduate women who are U.S. citizens majoring in the natural sciences and engineering. Pre-health science majors are ineligible for these awards. An overall GPA of 3.25 or higher is required at the time of the award. Students planning to attend medical school or to pursue health professions careers are ineligible for this award.
