2011 USGIF Scholarship Program Opens on Jan. 18

January 5, 2011

In an effort to help further the advancement of the geospatial tradecraft, USGIF is dedicated to assisting promising students interested in the geospatial sciences with its scholarship awards. USGIF hopes to inspire students who are interested in all that the growing field of GEOINT has to offer their futures.

Last year the Foundation awarded $86,000 to 19 recipients and plans to award equal or greater amounts for the 2011 program. Four Ph.D. candidates, six master’s students, six undergraduates and three graduating high school seniors received scholarships from the 2010 program. High school recipients received $2,000 scholarships, and all others received $5,000 scholarships. Recipients also receive complimentary registration to the GEOINT Symposium.

All scholarship recipients are chosen based on their academic and professional excellence in a field related to the geospatial intelligence tradecraft.
