Apply for Geographical Scientists to Visit, Stimulate Your Department

The Visiting Geographical Scientist program (VGSP) is accepting applications for the 2014-15 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 and is targeted for students, faculty members and administrative officers. Participating institutions select and make arrangements with the visiting geographer. For a list of pre-approved speakers and more information, visit

Please include a cover letter that describes the objective(s) of the visit and a schedule of events or activities being planned with the application form. Questions and complete applications may be directed to Niem Huynh.

VGSP is funded by Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU), the international honors society for geographers.
