Visiting Geographical Scientist Program Accepting Applications for 2012-13
December 12, 2012
The Visiting Geographical Scientist program (VGSP) is accepting applications for the 2012-13 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, administrative officers, and Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs). Participating institutions select and make arrangements with the visiting geographer. Applications and program details may be found here.
A list of pre-approved speakers is also available on the website. Please make sure to include a brief cover letter with your application that describes the objective(s) of the visit and the schedule of events or activities being planned.
