Visitor Studies Association Conference Awards

The Visitor Studies Association is proud to support attendance at the annual conference for newcomers who show great potential to contribute to the growth of VSA and the field of visitor studies. 

You are a good fit for our awards if...

  • You have not yet attended the VSA conference (NOTE: This is required!) 
  • You are in your early stages of your career; you are in a first visitor studies job or still studying to eventually work in visitor studies 
  • You have some experience, but still need support and exposure to the field 

Sound like you? We want to see your application!


April Award acknowledges one early-stage professional who has shown great potential in their visitor studies career and desires greater involvement with their professional field. 

Student Scholarships are awarded to up to three students and/or recent graduates who have made efforts to gain experience with visitor studies and hope to learn more about the field.
