WLP Endowment

As Director of the Elizabeth J. Somers’ Women’s Leadership Program, I am pleased to share news of a recent philanthropic commitment of $250,000 to create the Women’s Leadership Program Endowment.  The purpose of the endowment fund will be to support the broad needs of the Women’s Leadership Program, including faculty support, speaker stipends, summer internships, and emergency funds for WLP students.

This summer I will travel to Florence, Italy to assume the internship role within the Medici Archive Project. The opportunity is a dream come true, as a student of Italian Renaissance and a lover of Italy.

Congratulations to the WLP students whose research was recognized in GW Research Days 2019!
