The Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies program is pleased to co-sponsor lectures, exhibits, performances, and symposia that promote awareness of the history and/or culture of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the United States. Typically, A/PIA Studies can provide funding between $100-500 depending on budget considerations and relevance to the program. Projects that are initiated by A/PIA Studies faculty and students, and projects closely tied to A/PIA Studies scholarship have priority.
For cultural events that are led by student organizations, we ask that the A/PIA Studies program is advertised in any promotional materials (program booklet, poster, website) in consultation with the current A/PIA director. In addition, events must include an educational component and contribute to the academic and research mission of the unit.
Co-sponsorship requests from A/PIA Studies should be submitted at least 6 weeks before the event to provide enough time for faculty vote.
