Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship Program for Computer Science Majors

Bryn Mawr College has received funding through the Clare Boothe Luce Program of the Henry Luce Foundation to cover tuition and fees for the junior and senior years for one or two current sophomore Computer Science major(s) (Class of ’16). We are seeking students who have distinguished themselves in their first two years at the College through excellence in coursework and a commitment to Computer Science outside the classroom. Preference will be given to candidates who display an interest in conducting undergraduate research and pursuing graduate study and careers in Computer Science or a related field.

Selected scholars will participate in a program of mentoring, leadership and outreach opportunities, and professional development activities. The scholars will regularly meet with faculty to discuss numerous topics related to research and career options with advanced degrees. The CBL scholars will participate in activities such as developing a series of talks targeted to undergraduate CS majors and mentoring underclassmen.
