The Luard Morse Scholarship provides up to $25,000 towards a semester of study at an English University to deserving students attending United Negro College Fund institutions, Hampton and Howard Universities, or other Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The scholarship is open to sophomore students in all disciplines and has been awarded to students majoring in economics, philosophy, finance, mathematics, liberal arts and the sciences.
Since the inaugural 1969-70 academic year, 75 Luard Scholars have performed with distinction at 18 British universities, including Oxford University, Cambridge University, Edinburgh University, Nottingham University, and the London School of Economics and Political Science. They have served as ambassadors for the United States while abroad and for British higher education upon returning home.
"My Oxford experience provided me with the valuable exposure needed to make me globally competitive and increased my appreciation for the world's diverse peoples."
—Laura Campbell, 74th Luard Morse Scholar
