Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

Grants & Funding

In special instances, the Center is able to provide support for guest lectures and performances. If the Center funds a proposal for a guest lecture or performance, the Center only provides the funding for the event. Logistical arrangements and preparations are the full responsibility of the person sponsoring the event. If the event sponsor would like to hold the event in the Greenleaf Conference Room, that sponsor should complete a separate application with the Stone Center Secretary for reserving the room and discuss any logistical details of room usage with Center personnel well in advance of the event. Any publicity for such Center-supported events must bear the Center logo and must receive the approval of the Center before distribution. If a student organization or group seeks support, a faculty sponsor must be listed on the completed application form. Applications for support should be submitted by completing the appropriate application form for funding through the University’s WaveSync platform.

Application Deadlines are September 1 for Fall Semester events and December 1 for Spring Semester events.
