Meryl Streep to speak at UMass-Lowell

Posted: Updated:
LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep is coming to the University of Massachusetts-Lowell to speak to students and raise money for scholarships.
  
Streep is scheduled to appear at Tsongas Center on Wednesday where she will be interviewed by bestselling author and UMass English professor Andre Dubus III about her acting career.
  
Streep will also take questions from the audience.
 
All net proceeds from the event, including a raffle of a director's chair signed by Streep, will go toward scholarship funds, one for an English major and one for a math major. The goal is to raise more than $100,000.
  
Streep has been nominated for 18 Oscars, and won three, most recently in 2012 for her portrayal of the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady."
