The Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Program exists since 1989 when it granted the first award to support women interested in science, mathematics and engineering.

The organization was created by Clare Boothe Luce and her desire and goal was to encourage women to enroll in universities related to science, mathematics and engineering and become highly educated residents of the United States.
