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

Spelman College in Atlanta recently received a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to establish the Center of Excellence for Minority Women in STEM. The new center will be affiliated with the college’s Office of Research, Innovation, and Collaboration. The Center will offer three main access points for students and faculty, including research support, academic enrichment, and professional development through mentorship opportunities. In addition, the grant will allow the College to introduce an annual Women in STEM Speaker Series, designed to increase knowledge among faculty, staff, and students about emerging areas, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science.

A three-year grant from the federal Office on Violence Against Women enabled the Norse Violence Prevention Center at Northern Kentucky University to move to a new location and add two new positions. The grant will fund the expansion of prevention programs and provide increased accessibility of advocacy services, including a dedicated trauma-informed meeting space for student survivors.

The Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation at the University of South Florida received a five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to create a new program to educate Veterans Affairs-employed clinicians on how to take better care of their female patients. The program will train doctors and nurses from around the country to properly address the health issues of nearly 2 million women veterans.
