Lucy E. Moten Fellowship

The Lucy E. Moten Fellowship enables undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences to enrich their education with study abroad during the summer.

Lucy Ellen Moten played a key role in the progress of nineteenth-century women.  An alumnae of Howard University, class of 1870, she continued her studies earning degrees with Salem Normal School in Massachusetts, Spencerian Business College and Howard University Medical School. Dr. Moten served as principal of Miner Training School for Teachers, first a privately controlled institution for the preparation of Negro teachers in the District of Columbia. Anecdotally, Frederick Douglas, a member of the Miner board offered this position, to then a very young Lucy Moten, if she was willing to give up going to the theatre, playing cards and dancing. A progressive educator, she carefully screened individuals for the teaching profession with standards that placed a high premium on rigorous academic achievement and character.

She bequeathed $51,000 to Howard University to provide scholarships to students in the arts and sciences for travel and study-abroad opportunities.
