Co-sponsorships

Co-Sponsored Events

The Gender and Sexuality Studies Program receives many requests for financial co-sponsorship and support 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.

If your unit would like to request name-only co-sponsorship (i.e. non-financial support), please still complete this form and note $0 in requested funds.

Below are this year's deadlines: 

  • Friday October 7, 2022 for events taking place during the 2022-23 academic year
  • Friday, January 20, 2023 for events taking place during the 2022-23 academic year
  • Friday, April 14, 2023 for events taking place during the 2022-23 academic year or Fall 2023

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.
