The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is accepting applicants for its 2012 Scholarship program until April 20, 2012. Open to high school seniors, undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, the program awards cash to those students interested in geospatial study. From the announcement:
“Supporting student education and research with USGIF scholarships helps expand the frontier of our geospatial capabilities. Scholarship recipients represent a broad array of geospatial interests, including humanitarian operations, natural disaster preparation and response, epidemiology, transnational river politics, planetary applications, conflict along borders and modeling of river water quality,” said USGIF Academic Director Dr. Max Baber. “All of these interests exist within the broader definition of national security, so this represents a great opportunity for innovative students to be recognized and supported for their efforts.”
A total of $100,000 will be awarded to successful applicants. Last year, each high school recipient received $2,000 and those at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels received $5,000 each. Scholarship winners will be announced at the GEOINT 2012 Symposium on Oct. 8-11, in Orlando, Florida.
