Departments are able to apply for fund matching (up to $1,000) from the College of Letters & Science in order to help curb the cost of bringing in a distinguished speaker. Because of uncertain funding, please be aware that we may not be able to support all Distinguished Speaker requests. When booking a speaker, back-up funds from your own department may be needed in case your department does not receive funding from the Dean's Office. 

The College will NOT be accepting Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 applications due to COVID-19 and travel restrictions. We will put the distinguished speakers series on hold for the 20/21 AY and revisit it in the spring of 2021. 

For questions regarding the distinguished speakers series, please email or call the dean's office at (406) 994-4288 or [email protected]

The 2020-2021 application is now closed.
