Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship Program

Through the support of the Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Foundation, WIS@DU administers scholarships to undergraduate females majoring in select STEM disciplines, including Mathematics, Applied Math, Computer Science, and Data Science. The CBL scholarships may be used for tuition and fees, as well as room and board, if tuition is already covered by other scholarships.

Additionally, CBL scholars will be fully immersed in the Duquesne University Women in STEM organization (WIS) activities and be provided with opportunities for mentoring, career development and K-12 STEM outreach activities in the community.
