The Reves Center for International Studies is pleased to help support internationally-focused public lectures and performances. Funding is available to William & Mary faculty who wish to host distinguished scholars, artists and practitioners whose public events and visits will contribute to international education at the university.
Applications for support are accepted on a rolling basis, but must be submitted at least one month before the proposed event. Approved events typically are funded $500 each. Faculty members may receive Distinguished Lectures funding once per academic year (with the academic year beginning on the first day of undergraduate classes and continuing through the following summer).
Invoices, honorariums, etc. for speaker events are processed by staff in the grantee's home department, program or school. Reimbursement requests must be submitted to the Reves Center in the same fiscal year in which they were expended. The Reves Center will consider grants forfeited if proper documentation is not submitted in a timely manner.
Completion of the Publicity Request Form is a condition of receiving funding. This form should be completed prior to the event, leaving sufficient time to plan effective publicity. We request that you complete the form at least two weeks prior to the event. The information collected with this form will be used to publicize your event on the Reves Center Calendar and listservs. All other publicity must acknowledge the support of Reves Center Distinguished Lecture funding.
Any questions regarding funding may be directed to [[dralleman, Dianne Alleman]].
