WFU gets grant to establish new scholarships for women

Wake Forest University has received a $255,000 grant from the Clare Boothe Luce Program of the Henry Luce Foundation to award four two-year scholarships for women students.

The Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Scholarships will be awarded to two Wake Forest juniors in both 2000 and 2001. Competition will be open to leading female mathematics, science and computer science majors. The intent of the scholarships is to encourage women to enter, study, graduate and teach in those fields.

Scholarships will cover the full cost of recipients’ junior and senior years at the university. In addition, the university will award Clare Boothe Luce Scholars a stipend for a research project. Scholars will be paired with Wake Forest professors who oversee their progress and guide their research. Wake Forest will also assist scholars in obtaining a summer research opportunity between their junior and senior years.
