The Katherine J. Williams and the Prasad Family Foundation Multicultural Fund

The Katherine J. Williams Fund promotes diversity in scholarship and recruitment. It was established upon Williams's retirement in 2000 to honor her many contributions to the Art Therapy Program for over 20 years.

In 2005, the Prasad Foundation gave a $2,500 match grant in order to endow the Katherine J. Williams Fund. Sangeeta Patel Prasad, MA ’89, is an alumna of the Art Therapy Program and her husband, Ram, MS ’87, is an alumnus of the GW School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

The Kwiatkowska Fund

The purpose of the Kwiatkowska Fund is to honor Professor Hanna Kwiatkowska's research, clinical work and teaching legacy. The fund supports the Kwiatkowska Award, given annually to students with exceptional strengths in family assessment or group research. 

Kwiatkowska was an adjunct assistant professor in the Art Therapy Program from 1971 until her death in 1980. She pioneered clinical work in family art therapy and introduced art therapy in the research program at the National Institute of Mental Health.
