Inquiries Into Doctorate That Doesn't Exist

Inquiries Into Doctorate That Doesn't Exist
June 5, 2013

The National Endowment for the Humanities is investigating whether laws were broken when grant applications from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences incorrectly indicated that its leader, Leslie Berlowitz, has a doctorate, The Boston Globe reported. The Globe reported this week that two grant applications had the false claim of a doctorate, and the endowment found a third. A spokesman for the academy said that Berlowitz didn't review the portion of the grant applications that had the incorrect information about her education. But the Globe reported that the false claim also has appeared in a job ad for the academy and in a draft advance obituary prepared at the academy for Berlowitz.
