Filling out the Sponsorship Form

The WHA has streamlined sponsorship by opening a new sponsor registration form! After you have confirmed your sponsorship, you will receive an email from the WHA office with a link to this new form. Fill out your details in the form, and enter your confirmed sponsorship amount in the "Donation Amount" field. Once you have completed the form, the WHA will generate an invoice connected to the form and send it to you!

    The WHA is located in the Department of History at the University of Kansas.

    The WHA is grateful to KU's History Department and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for their generous support!
