Distinguished Visiting Speakers Program (DVSP)

The new application will be available in the Fall.

The Distinguished Visiting Speaker Program (DVSP) engages students and university members in relevant, thought-provoking discussions on a diverse range of issues that impact our lives, environment and our communities. The DVSP Speaker Series brings prominent artists, scientists, environmentalists, entrepreneurs and other leading thinkers to classrooms and university wide lectures to share their discoveries, stories, visionary ideas and artistic performances. 

Due to COVID-19 applications can only be submitted in one category:

Category 1

  • Applications (up to $500) request support for classroom visits, department seminars by a Distinguished Speaker, individuals or small group of scholars with broad appeal to the university community. 

Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds have been disbursed.

Please note: international speakers may have up to 30% of honorarium withheld for taxes.
