Meryl Streep to appear at UMass-Lowell

Posted: Updated:

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep is appearing at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell to speak to students and raise money for scholarships.

Streep will be interviewed by bestselling author and UMass-Lowell English professor Andre Dubus III on Tuesday. She will also take questions from the audience of 3,500 at the Tsongas Arena.

All net proceeds from the event - including a raffle of a director's chair autographed by Streep - will go toward scholarship funds, one for an English major and one for a math major.

Streep has been nominated for 18 Oscars, and won three, most recently in 2012 for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady."

Streep was originally scheduled to appear at the school in February, but that was postponed because of a snowstorm.
