SEEDS has announced opportunities for a month-long leadership training in the HERS Bryn Mawr Summer Institute. This year's leadership development curriculum covers a range of key topics to address the current economic crisis including finance, strategic planning and change leadership. Participants will also have the opportunity to work with experienced leaders to develop high-impact approaches to maintaining academic excellence and institutional capacity in the face of shrinking resources. Some funds will be available, but cost share is expected.

The Friedman-Klarreich Family Foundation A Director of The Friedman-Klarreich Family Foundation has contacted SEEDS, which is a family foundation that is oriented toward “Achieving  educational and economic equity for girls and women”, expressing an interest in funding a program through SEEDS .  This foundation has given money to other NSF ADVANCE programs, such as the NSF WISER program at Case Western Reserve; they provided funds designated for WISER activities that prepare students for careers in corporate life. This foundation gives grants up to $5,000. Please contact the SEEDS Director if you have a project that could be of interest to them.
