Co-Sponsor Support Fund

The Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research seeks to be an engine for producing research in the humanities; a hub of community for faculty, students, and the public; and a model of democratic education, fit for our land grant university.

As part of these aims, the Humanities Institute has established a fund to support humanities-related activities at the university. The kinds of activities eligible for support from this fund include, but are not limited to:

  • Bringing distinguished scholars in humanities related fields to deliver public talks at the university, affiliated community colleges and/or broader Wyoming community.

  • Developing seminars, symposia, conferences, and/or workshops that help foster and advance humanities based research at the university.

  • Covering the costs of honoraria, travel, and other incidental expenses for these kinds of activities.

Applications must include:

  1. The cover sheet provided below

  2. A detailed description of the intended use of the funding, specifically discussing how the application fulfills the general purpose of promoting humanities-based research (no longer than one single spaced page)

  3. A detailed budget listing specific categories and amounts of proposed expenditure for each. This budget should reflect: (1) the total cost of the proposed activity; (2) the costs that will be covered by the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Reserach funds; and (3) other sources from whom you are requesting funding and, if available, the amount that each has pledged (no longer than one single spaced page).

Consideration/Approval Process:

Applications for funding from the WIHR Co-Sponsor Support Fund will be considered on 15th of each month. Applications will be evaluated on a competitive basis and assessed in terms of their merit in helping to foster and advance humanities based scholarship and/or the community of humanities scholars at UW. Generally speaking, WIHR funding will be limited to $1000 per request; the average award may be approximately $500. Successful applicants must agree to give due public recognition to the Yoming Insititute for Humanities Research in all publicity for their event.
