Co-Sponsorship Request Form

UIC Institute for the Humanities Co-Sponsorship Request 2019-2020

The UIC Institute for the Humanities welcomes the opportunity to co-sponsor humanities events with other units on campus. The types of events we co-sponsor include lectures by visiting scholars, conferences, symposia, and scholarly panels. We give priority to events with strong humanities content and in which UIC faculty play a prominent role either in the planning or in the event itself. Our co-sponsorship may include space (if available), modest financial support (usually $300), limited publicity, or modest refreshments.

Our funds and resources for co-sponsorships are limited.  In order to plan ahead and fairly distribute our resources we invite proposals for modest co-sponsorship requests.  For larger events or conference support please contact us directly.

We will review co-sponsorship requests for upcoming events two times each semester. Please fill out the request form (online OR as downloadable PDF or Word form). Downloaded request forms should be submitted as attachments to huminst@uic.edu. Please submit proposals by one of the dates posted below:
