Requesting HFSA Co-Sponsorship
In addition to collaborating with our campus community on events and initiatives, HFSA also believes in uplifting our partners’ efforts through financial co-sponsorships. A co-sponsorship is funding for a specific event/function for which HFSA receives a benefit as well as recognition for the co-sponsor. Co-sponsorship amounts will vary depending on the scope and costs associated with the event, as well as available funds in any given year. The average award is $1,000.
HFSA places a high priority on co-sponsoring events that supports the mission of promoting understanding and respect of Hispanic culture on our campus through advocacy, education, and service.
- Any student organization, department, or community entity may request an event/function co-sponsorship.
- Organizations may only receive funding once per year (September 1-August 31).
- Only complete requests will be considered and are subject to the administrative and accounting rules of The University of Texas at Austin. There is no guarantee that requests will be granted.
