The CSUSB Intellectual Life Fund is designed to enhance the intellectual vitality of the university by bringing guest presenters to campus. Examples of guest presenters include professors from other campuses, artists, policymakers, professionals, public servants, and diplomats who have something unique and important to offer to CSUSB students, faculty, and staff.
The Fund supports presentations in two major categories: talk/lecture and performance/demonstration. The presentation proposed for funding can be a stand-alone event or part of larger event. The applicant can apply as an individual member of the CSUSB community or a representation of a CSUSB unit or organization. Awardees of the Fund are required to file a report after the conclusion of the event, no later than the end of the academic year.
The call for applications is made in the Spring Quarter each year for events to take place in the following academic year. The applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision about funding by the end of May.
