Conference Funding

UCHI Conference Support

UCHI supports scholarly, interdisciplinary conferences on campus by means of subventions up to $4,000 in a single fiscal year and through administrative assistance; amount of funding depends on the size and program for the conference.

No award will be made without a written proposal and projected budget.

Email your proposal to uchi@uconn.edu or download a printable application (Adobe PDF or Word document) and mail directly to the Institute. UCHI will promptly address each proposal.

Sponsors are required to submit a statement to the UCHI Director after the conference acknowledging the completion of the commitment.
