Programming Co-sponsorship

COVID-19 Update: In accordance with the Dean of Faculty’s directive, co-sponsorship funds cannot be awarded in 2020-21. Please check back for updates.

The Cogut Institute for the Humanities co-sponsors events across campus through modest awards. Requests are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. 


All Brown University students, faculty, research associates, and postdoctoral fellows are eligible. Individuals may apply on behalf of a student group or a department.  


Requests are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the academic year and should be received at least 6 weeks before the date of the event. All requests should include:

  1. A short description of the event (one to three sentences)
  2. A full description of the event including information about the program, the schedule, the speaker(s), and the event's relevance to the humanities
  3. A budget, including a list of supporting departments and their co-sponsorship amounts

Please submit all materials via the co-sponsorship request form. You must be logged into your Brown University email account to access the form. 

Co-sponsored events should include our full name (Cogut Institute for the Humanities) on all publicity materials. We will ask to receive copies of print and online materials.
