Fordham University and the Henry Luce Foundation awarded Madeline Newall '19 a Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Scholarship for 2021-2022. Madeline is pursuing an applied mathematics major with a psychology minor at Fordham.
The CBL Fund for Women in Science and Engineering at Fordham University was established in 1989 to encourage women to pursue graduate education and careers in the sciences. The scholarship covers tuition and fees not covered by other scholarships and awards for the fall and spring of the 2021-2022 academic year.
“I was extremely excited and grateful when I found out that I received the Clare Booth Luce Scholarship,” said Madeline. “The scholarship will help me pursue my research endeavors with a great academic support system and it allows me to dedicate a large part of my academic life at Fordham to a great research project.”
“Achieving this scholarship would not have been possible without the support of my family and the academic foundation of the Mount where I truly found my passion for mathematics. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity,” she said.
“I am interested in statistics and data analytics for my career goals,” she said. “I hope to work in research, possibly as a data analyst or statistician working in the sports data field or social justice using collected data to find solutions to systemic problems. Through research, I can combine my passions for mathematics and psychology to create substantial change.”
