2012 Karen Von Damm Leadership Development Grants Awarded to 3 Women STEM Faculty

Jul 26, 2012

ADVANCE at UNH has announced that three women faculty will receive 2012 Karen Von Damm Leadership Development Grants to support them as they pursue leadership opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. 

The awardees and their supported activities are:

Julia Bryce, Associate Professor, Earth Sciences
This award will allow her to continue the development of her scholarly work while serving as Department Chair in Earth Sciences. Ultimately, this will enhance her leadership role at the university and within the geosciences community.

Jennifer Jacobs, Professor, Civil Engineering
This award will provide support for research and teaching projects while she continues to serve as faculty lead in the next phase of the creation of the School of Earth and Environment Sciences— a leadership opportunity within the university and in Earth and environmental sciences.

Alynna Lyon, Associate Professor, Political Science
The Karen Von Damm Grant will provide support for her teaching while she is completing a book examining "United States Relations with the United Nations in an Era of Globalization." Her research makes bridges between hard science and social sciences. The grant will support both her contribution to her department and her research.

The grants, funded with support from the National Science Foundation, are named to honor the late Dr. Karen Von Damm, UNH professor and internationally renowned leader and chemical oceanographer.  They are administered through the Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering Education as part of an ongoing effort to support the advancement and leadership of women faculty in the STEM disciplines at UNH.
