Dean's Fund for Speakers

To encourage student groups in inviting appropriate and educational speakers to Penn Law, the Dean provides funding on an annual basis. The Dean of Students will coordinate the distribution of these funds to various student groups.

To obtain funding a group must:

1. provide a written request for funding that specifically lists the costs for publicity, transportation, and any other incidental costs for bringing a speaker,

2. provide a brief written biography of the speaker and the intended audience for the event,

3. indicate how the student group expects to provide a significant part of the funding for the speaker and specify on the request the amount they will be providing,

4. submit the request at least two weeks in advance of the intended speaker’s appearance, noting that funding requests may be submitted as far in advance as the group wishes to apply, e.g., we will accept requests for a May event in November.

If you have questions, please see the Dean of Students.
