PCOSW Speakers Series Partnership Opportunity

The PCOSW Speaker Series Subcommittee, composed of PCOSW members, is seeking OSU partners who are in need of funding for a speaker event that aligns with the mission of the President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCOSW).

The Subcommittee welcomes funding requests from all members of the OSU community for a range of speaker event formats, including but not limited to lectures and workshops. Applicants must provide a clear explanation of the purpose, timing, and cost of the speaker event; how the event aligns and supports the PCOSW mission.

Priority for a given term is given to applications submitted by the Friday of week three of that term.

Funding recipients will be responsible for event logistics and will adhere to OSU policies and procedures.  Speaker events funded by this opportunity will identify PCOSW as an event sponsor.

The PCOSW Speaker Series Subcommittee evaluates each request using the following criteria:

Connection to the PCOSW Mission and Theme:

  • Does the event align with PCOSW's mission?
  • Who is the audience for the event? 
  • Is the event open to the OSU campus community?
  • Does the event have the potential to significantly affect individuals and/or a community?  

Merit of the Request:

  • Does the request provide a clear statement of the event, speaker, and audience?
  • Does the request provide clear and specific budget information in the form of an itemized list of expenses?
  • Are the proposed timeline and budget feasible?
  • Are there contributions from other sources?
  • Has the applicant demonstrated sufficient resources and support to successfully host the event?
