FROM THE NATIONAL OFFICE
The 1978-79 academic year promises to be an important and productive time for NWSA.
I am very pleased to be able to report that the Association has received a small grant from The Ford Foundation, $25,000 for a period of fifteen months, to support and strengthen this office and its capacity to reach and serve persons and groups working in women's studies.
This grant will make it possible to prepare and distribute membership and other Association materials throughout the country, will allow the Association's Steering Committee to meet and to communicate more effectively with in the organization, and will provide some resources by for the initial planning stages of several major Association projects. One of which is our First National Convention.
