Call for Sponsors

The Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, the host of the conference, has a long-standing commitment to promoting diverse abilities across the lifespan through interdisciplinary training, research, and service. Pac Rim is one of our many efforts towards this.

  • Scholarships for students and people with disabilities who may otherwise not be able to attend the conference;
  • Sponsoring American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters or other language interpreters for conference speakers and sessions to help make sure the conference is accessible to as many people as possible; and
  • Sponsor a broad array of conference topic areas to help make sure as many communities are served as possible.

The following outlines ways we will promote your brand or company given your level of support: Gold, Silver, Bronze or Friend of Pac Rim.
