Supporting events that further our mission

The Obermann Center welcomes the opportunity to support events that further our mission—promoting research and creative work, facilitating publicly engaged art and scholarship, and building intellectual community. University of Iowa faculty members may request small, discretionary grants (up to $300) to fund opportunities such as visiting speakers and conferences. See application link at the bottom left of this page. While applications are accepted throughout the year, we strongly encourage you to apply for these funds before December 15.

Please note:

  1. The requesting party is expected to administer the funding and the event. The Obermann Center cannot assume organizational responsibilities in connection with co-sponsored events.
  2. The Obermann Center will not release funding for approved co-sponsorships until the activity/event is posted on the UI Events Calendar, with the Obermann Center tagged as a unit. (The event will then appear on the Obermann Center's website.)
