Event Co-Sponsorship Request Form

Public Scholarship and Engagement (PSE) is fostering a culture of engagement that builds and supports meaningful relationships between communities and UC Davis scholars that work together to solve today’s problems and tomorrow’s challenges. We provide co-sponsorship funding for events that contribute to our vision of a university unbound that seeks to serve the public, equitably and inclusively, resulting in reciprocal and mutual benefit to California’s communities and beyond.

Events include but are not limited to: conferences, symposia, guest lectures, workshops, trainings, film screenings, performances, exhibits and other activities with a public scholarship and/or public engagement focus.
