USGIF is now accepting applications for the 2021 and 2022 GEOINT Symposia Young Professionals Golden Ticket Program. Each year, USGIF offers the Golden Ticket program as an opportunity for young professionals 35 years old or younger to win complimentary full registration to the GEOINT Symposium as well as participate in mentoring sessions with senior GEOINT leaders, attend USGIF’s Chairman’s Reception, and much more.

This year, we are combining the call for 2021 and 2022 Golden Ticket applicants given the shortened time frame between Symposia. When applying, please indicate your preference between the two symposia. USGIF will try to accommodate winner preferences but cannot guarantee that preferences will be honored.

Winning the Golden Ticket includes free registration to either the GEOINT 2021 or 2022 Symposium, however, winners are responsible for their own housing and travel.

Applications are due by Friday, July 30, at midnight EST. Along with the application, you must also submit a resume and one Letter of Recommendation. Please send the resume and letter to with the subject line “Golden Ticket Documents [Your Name].” To apply, visit: USGIF Golden Ticket Application.

If you are an NGA employee and are interested in applying, please email
