--------------------
The Arctic Visiting Speakers Program (AVS), managed by the Arctic
Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) with funding from the
National Science Foundation's Section for Arctic Sciences, Division of
Polar Programs is currently accepting applications from individuals,
institutions, or organizations interested in hosting an arctic visiting speaker.
AVS provides travel grants for speakers to present on arctic topics to a 
variety of audiences.

Visiting speakers can include scientists and researchers, indigenous
peoples, or any other person with expertise relevant to the Arctic.
Speaking tours can serve many types of audiences, but should include a
community or public activity. Speakers can be selected from the online
Speakers Bureau, which is available at:
http://www.arcus.org/arctic-visiting-speakers/bureau/search.
Alternatively, a speaker not yet listed in the Bureau can be added with
approval from ARCUS.

Successful host applications will provide a schedule of events that
includes a wide variety of speaking engagements to a diverse set of
audiences. Rural and underserved areas are especially encouraged to
apply.

The grants are capped at $2,000 for domestic (U.S.) tours. Grants can
include, but are not limited to, funding for transportation, lodging,
per diem, and a speaker stipend. Applications must be submitted at least
one month prior to the expected event dates. Applications are reviewed
as they are received.
