The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved up to $300,000 in federal funding for a Father Mychal Judge Center at St. Bonaventure University.

The report in the Irish Echo Online said the center would facilitate exchange programs between the university and institutions in Northern Ireland.

“I am excited about St. Bonaventure’s establishment of the Father Mychal Judge Center and for the possibilities it will mean, not only for the students here in America but for those in Northern Ireland who will travel to Western New York,” said Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who pressed for the inclusion of the funding.

The funding must now be approved by the full Senate and House of Representatives.
