Women’s Leadership Awards accepts nominees
The Ann Radcliffe Trust at Harvard College, which seeks to raise the awareness of women’s issues at the University, and the Women’s Leadership Project, an undergraduate organization dedicated to increasing the number and diversity of women leaders, are now accepting nomination letters for the Harvard College Women’s Leadership Awards. In its fourth year, the award includes a cash stipend of $750. The Women’s Leadership Award is funded through an endowment established with a gift from Terrie Field Bloom ’75.
The Women’s Leadership Award honors a junior or senior who has demonstrated exceptional leadership while attending Harvard; contributed toward the advancement of women; achieved meaningful impact on fellow students; and exhibited a potential for leadership in future endeavors. Candidates may be nominated by an administrator, student, staff, or faculty member in the form of a letter of recommendation. Nomination letters should be sent to Paul Bohlmann in the fellowship office of the Office of Career Services before Friday, Dec. 8.

Gazette publication schedule
The Harvard University Gazette will publish its final December paper on Dec. 14. The deadline for Calendar submissions is today, Dec. 7. The Gazette will resume publication on Jan. 18. The deadline for Calendar listings in that edition will be 5 p.m. Jan. 11.
Due to incorrect information provided to the Gazette, the architectural firm for the Bauer Life Sciences Building was incorrectly attributed in the Nov. 30 edition. The name of the firm should have read Ellenzweig Associates, Inc., Architects.
Also in the Nov. 30 edition, the headline over the Harvard Children’s Initiative article indicated that this was a new program, when in fact it has been in existence since October 1998. The Harvard Children’s Initiative is an expansion of the interfaculty initiative formerly known as the Harvard Project on Schooling and Children, which was founded in 1993.
