Co-sponsorships

Co-Sponsored Events

The Gender and Sexuality Studies Program receives many requests for co-sponsorship of events. We are unable to honor all of them, and the amount granted varies based on the nature of the request. We will review all requests quarterly. Co-sponsorship applications from undergraduate students must include a letter of support from an NU faculty member. 

Below are this year's deadlines: 

  • Friday, October 9th, 2020 for events taking place during the 2020-21 academic year
  • Friday, January 15th, 2021 for events taking place during the 2020-21 academic year
  • Friday, April 9th, 2021 for events taking place during the 2020-21 academic year or Fall 2021

Notification will be sent to all applicants within two weeks following the quarterly deadline. For further information, please contact Eliot Colin at gender@northwestern.edu.
