What events qualify for sponsorship? 

To be considered for sponsorship, your event must be affiliated with an existing Brandeis student organization or department and create connection opportunities for Brandeis students and alumni. Sample event formats include alumni panels, networking nights, case competitions and more.

How does sponsorship work? 

Students can apply for Rise Together event sponsorships to help cover event-related expenses including food and space costs, travel reimbursements for alumni guest speakers and more. Once approved for a sponsored event, you will work directly with the Rise Together team to cover your event expenses as outlined in your application.

What is the commitment? 

If awarded a Rise Together sponsorship, you must complete the following:

  • List Rise Together as an event sponsor on all marketing materials. Rise Together assets and sample language will be provided.

  • Provide an attendance list to the Rise Together team after your event
