The Visiting Geographical Scientist program (VGSP) is accepting applications for the 2013-14 academic year. VGSP sponsors visits by prominent geographers to small departments or institutions that do not have the resources to bring in well-known speakers. The purpose of this program is to stimulate interest in geography, targeted for students, faculty members and administrative officers. Participating institutions select and make arrangements with the visiting geographer. For more information, visit

A list of pre-approved speakers is also available on the website. Please include a cover letter that describes the objective(s) of the visit, a schedule of events or activities being planned with the application form.

VGSP is funded by Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU), the international honors society for geographers. Questions and complete applications may be directed to Niem Huynh.
