The Lecture Fund can work with your organization in three different ways, and it's very important to understand how they differ:
The Lecture Fund, through its relationship to the Student Activities Commission (SAC), must approve all lecture-style events to be held at Georgetown by SAC groups. If you represent a SAC group that is simply looking for your event to be approved - but do not require any funding or logistical/marketing support - please select this option. We will consider your request and respond via e-mail.
Otherwise, if you are seeking financial/logistical support, please see below:
What you're asking for: The Lecture Fund only considers financing the lecture-related components of an event, such as honorariums, travel/accommodation, A/V fees, etc. We will not consider funding other aspects of the event, such as food costs, or other types of events which do not have a distinct lecture and Q&A session (such as concerts, etc). Save both our organizations some time and make sure in advance that you're looking elsewhere for non-lecture-related components of your event. And if you're ever not sure if the event falls under the Lecture Fund umbrella, e-mail us and we'll be glad to clarify!

This is your chance to sell the event, and to make sure you get the most out of us, make sure you adhere to the following:
