Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs

Request Watson Co-sponsorship of an Undergraduate-Initiated Event

Todd Stern with Brown University students, Watson Institute

The Watson Institute welcomes applications from undergraduates for the Institute's hosting, promotion, or funding of on-campus student activities. Proposals should be for events that:

  • fall within the mission of the Watson Institute, "to promote a just and peaceful world through research, teaching, and public engagement";
  • relate to themes residing squarely within the arena of international and public affairs;
  • advance student knowledge about international and public affairs (as opposed to events more generally celebrating culture);
  • benefit, inclusively, Brown's undergraduate community; and
  • might seek to meet costs such as travel for guest speakers, publicity, and light refreshments, with a limit of $500 per event.

Applications are assessed on a rolling basis.
