2008 Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship



The Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University is proud to offer the Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship provided by the Henry Luce Foundation.

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.  She appreciated, however, that many women face obstacles in their chosen professions.  By establishing this program, she sought to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.

The Fellowship will be awarded to an outstanding female graduate applicant who plans to begin doctoral study in the Fall of 2008.  The recipient will be identified as the Clare Boothe Luce Graduate Fellow.  The fellowship covers a stipend of $23,000 for the academic year and $7,000 for the summer ($30,000 total), tuition, benefits and other expenses each year for two academic years.

To be eligible, the applicant must be:
* Female
* U.S. Citizen
* Incoming Graduate Student

The deadline for the application is January 17, 2008.
