Le Moyne’s Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Research Scholars program, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation, motivates and prepares high-potential undergraduate women majoring in chemistry, computer science, mathematics or physics for success.

Through engagement in mentored hands-on practical research, networking and career preparation activities, as a CBL Research Scholar you’re exposed to research from the idea to the outcomes to the presentation of findings. You’ll enjoy scholar-mentor lunches, STEM/research seminars and one-on-one advising. At the conclusion of the program, all research is presented in a public venue along with a final report.

"Doing research at Le Moyne really helped me to learn a lot about myself. I gained so much from the experience."

The journey is definitely not linear, and I’ve gained powerful tools such as patience, independence and a strong work ethic which will carry with me through all aspects of life. My experience in research has taught me to be set on my goals but flexible in my methods of achieving them, which is a perspective that has positively impacted my life in several ways.”
