The 2020 GTU scholarship competition is closed. Application materials will be available in Spring 2021.




Gamma Theta Upsilon, The International Geographical Honor Society, offers five scholarships to reward academic achievement and service to local GTU chapters. Each scholarship carries an award of $1000.

Complete application packets shall contain the following:

Faculty references should send letters of recommendation from their official university email address to Jimmy Wilson, GTU 1st Vice President at [email protected] with the subject line: "GTU Scholarship Letter of Recommendation 2020 for [Applicant name]".


Guidelines for E-mail Submission:

Electronically submit your application (excluding the letters of recommendation, which the writers should send following the guidelines in the previous section) via e-mail as an attached, single PDF to [email protected].
