Five Bowdoin sophomores have been awarded multi-year research fellowships as part of the College’s Clare Booth Luce Research Scholars (CBL) program. The program is dedicated to increasing the presence of women in the physical sciences and offers selected scholars a structured research experience with a faculty mentor that spans two academic years.
Their research spans chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and astrophysics and will culminate in honors projects. As CBL scholars, the students will have the opportunity to present at professional conferences, attend guest lectures by outstanding women scientists, and possibly work in an off-campus lab.
During the past decade, one-quarter of all Bowdoin graduates majored in the natural sciences and mathematics. Forty-five percent of those graduates were women. Read story.
