Co-Sponsorship Request Form

To broadly support humanities research and public engagement, we foster connections across the University and with the wider community through co-sponsorships and other collaborations.

The Humanities Center has modest co-sponsorship funding available for events that align with our Mission, though it is our policy to avoid supporting events that overlap or conflict with others on our schedule. [Refer to our calendar listings.]

Co-sponsorship proposals are considered on a rolling basis through the year, but it is to your advantage to apply as far in advance of your event date as possible!
