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.  It is our policy to avoid supporting events that overlap or conflict with others on our schedule, therefore, please refer to our calendar listings as you plan.

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.

Download the Co-Sponsorship Request form.

Co-Sponsored Event Info Sheet

If / when the Humanities Center supports your event with a co-sponsorship, please submit finalized event details as early as possible, via this Publicity Info Sheet emailed to

[NOTE: SYMPOSIUM partners should use the Symposium-specific "Press Sheet" under that section above.]

Download a sample of our most recent Watson Visiting Professor proposal form.

The deadline has passed for Spring 2020 residency proposals (November 8, 2019).
