The Baker-Nord Center is able to co-sponsor a limited number of campus events with a humanistic perspective that enrich the intellectual life of the University. Co-sponsorship grants support events that cross disciplinary boundaries and engage with other parts of the University or the Cleveland community. We are particularly interested in projects that address the theme of the 2017 Cleveland Humanities Festival on “Immigration.” Grants may not be used to support ongoing programs such as departmental colloquia, except in cases that offer exceptional opportunity. Examples of supported events include, but are not limited to, visiting speakers, academic events for students, or community outreach.
In most cases, support will be limited to $1,000, will not exceed 50% of the event’s cost, and does not include technical, logistical, or marketing assistance.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but in order to be included in the Baker-Nord calendar, co-sponsorship applications must be submitted before December 1 for events taking place in the spring semester, and May 1 for events taking place during the fall.
Successful applicants are responsible for submitting to the Baker-Nord Center an appropriate description of the event for publication in the calendar.
