The Clare Boothe Luce Program has awarded SEAS $300,000 to support an undergraduate research program that will enable undergraduate female SEAS students to pursue research with guidance from faculty mentors, hone their professional skills, and establish themselves as university leaders. Dr. Rachelle Heller (Computer Science) will serve as the academic lead on the program.

Four students will be selected for the 2018-2019 research program.  Currently enrolled female sophomore students in SEAS are eligible for one of the four research scholarships that will be awarded this year.  Funding for each scholarship will total $37,250 and will cover academic year and summer stipends, and money for research materials, supplies, and travel to a professional conference.  The application deadline is March 1, 2018.

Students may find more information and apply online.  They may also contact Dr. Heller with questions regarding the program.
