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 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.
