Here is this week’s news of grants and gifts that may be of particular interest to women in higher education.

Lisa Goodman, a professor of counseling psychology in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College is the leader of a grant project funded by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. The initiative will develop an online support network for scholars conducting community-based participatory research relating to domestic violence. Professor Goodman has taught at Boston College since 1999. She is a graduate of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. from Boston University.

Bryn Mawr College, the highly rated liberal arts educational institution for women in Pennsylvania, received an anonymous gift of $25 million. The donation is the largest in the college’s history and is believed to match the largest gift ever from an individual woman to a women’s college. The funds will be used to renovate the Park Science Center at the college and to support study abroad programs.

Wichita State University in Kansas received a five-year, $8.6 million grant from the National Institute on Aging for research on women’s fertility.
