Proposal Guidelines 

CSUSM appreciates and relies on your expertise and knowledge in various fields to create excellent and diverse programming. 

Since the inception of CSUSM, the Arts and Lectures Series has provided the campus and community with an array of innovative art, lecture and cultural events.  In 2004, the program became committee driven, and events are now curated through a call for proposals.  Proposals are welcome from faculty, staff and students from all departments as well as community members with a University contact.

The Arts & Lectures Committee will choose a limited number of events based on their relevance to the mission of the program and CSUSM as a whole, campus and community impact and the scope of appeal of the event.

Categories up for submission:

     1)  Standard Events:

  • Event will be awarded up to $2,000 for your guest contract fee

     2)  Signature Events: 

  • Event will be awarded up to $7,500 for your guest contract fee
  • Any extraordinary tech requirements or additional funding will need to be co-sponsored by outside funding sources

  • A written plan needs to be included with the proposal outlining where the funds (above $7,500) will come from and confirmation from those sources
  • Please use the standard A&L Funding Request Form when asking for outside support

    3)  Call for Ideas:
