The Details

Faculty Of Arts Sponsorship Opportunity: Philosophy, History And Politics Conference – January Annually

Investment: $500+


The PHP Conference is one of the few undergraduate conferences in Canada. This is a pioneering conference created by the students with the support of their Arts Faculty Advisors. Because students organize this event along with their advisors, this offers valuable experience students can take with them into their future careers. Student presenters have an opportunity to showcase their work to a panel of fellow students and professors.

Event sponsors $500

  • Prominent logo placement on all advertising including student programs
  • Logo placement and link in digital conference program
  • Verbal recognition at event
  • Logo on the sponsor board placed in a prominent location at the event

Student driven event builds valuable leadership skills


The conference provides a great opportunity for students to practice public speaking in a friendly and relaxed environment. Students network with other people in their field of interest from across North America developing important connections. When students have a chance to share with others the research they are passionate about affirms their love of learning and is such an important part of the learning experience.

Your sponsorship would provide much needed financial support ensuring the sustainability of this conference and would also students valuable time to focus on their studies.
