The OSA Traveling Lecturer Program provides funding for OSA Student Chapters and Local Sections to host a guest speaker of your choosing annually. Invited lecturers must be members of OSA and a Traveling Lecturer to be eligible. Chapters and sections may search for a distinguished speaker through our Traveling Lecturer Directory. Please note that the Traveling Lecturer Directory is part of the OSA Universal Directory and you must select "Traveling Lecturer" in order to sort the list.
How to Apply:
Step 1. The chapter or section will complete a Traveling Lecturer Request Form through the OSA Grants Database.
How the program works:
Step 1. OSA will send an invitation to the requested lecturer and to host chapter/section.
Step 2. Traveling lecturer agrees to participate* and OSA provides the traveling lecturer with a confirmation email outlining the travel and lodging process and expectations for the lecture. The lecturer can book his/her travel.
Step 3. The chapter/section contacts the lecturer to confirm all other event arrangements and details.
* If a lecturer does not agree to participate the chapter contact will work with the OSA staff to identify another lecturer to invite.
