New RESI Co-Sponsorships Program

The Race & Ethnic Studies Institute is now offering co-sponsorships to support programming on campus that aligns with our mission, scope, and vested interest in high quality research. The first deadline is September 1, so don’t delay!!! Head on over to our Co-Sponsorships page to read more and apply.

Supporting Events that Further Our Mission

One of the ways the Race & Ethnic Studies Institute supports race and ethnic studies at Texas A&M University is by co-sponsoring public lectures and other research-focused public engagements by visitors from outside the university who engage in research that fits within our mission and scope. Requests of up to $500 may be made. Funds must be used for the time period specified in the grant application, which must be before August 31 of the fiscal year. Events will not be retroactively funded.

Co-Sponsorships Eligibility and Timeline

We will be accepting applications four times a year. Requests must be submitted at least one month before the speaker/event you’re asking us to co-sponsor. Given the adjustment to the new schedule, we will accept off-cycle requests (especially at the beginning of the year), but we will not fund anything that is less than one month away.

Faculty, staff, and graduate students may submit requests for co-sponsorships. Applicants should verify that their event does not conflict with any major RESI events that are already scheduled (like our colloquia or any conferences/symposia we’re hosting). Priority may be given to applicants who have not received funding through this program in the past year. Events must be free and open to the public to be eligible. More information can be found at the Co-Sponsorships page.

All publicity must acknowledge the sponsorship of “The Race & Ethnic Studies Institute.” If you need our logo for publicity materials, download it here.
