About these awards
Co-sponsorship helps fund a Northwestern department, program, center, or student group hosting a one-time event.
The award provides one-time financial support for an event on contemporary international political, economic, and/or social issues.
The Buffett Institute will ordinarily contribute a maximum of one-third of an event's total budget.
A co-sponsorship does not include staff support.
The event must be organized by a Northwestern department, program, center, or student group. The event must have clear implications for contemporary international political, economic, and/or social issues.
- We do not co-sponsor social events, concerts, or performances.
- We do not accept applications from individual students, but we welcome applications from established student groups.
- Priority is given to events that take place at Northwestern.
Application deadline: Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
