The American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Western Great Lakes Region is comprised of public, private, and academic professionals dedicated to the advancement of the geospatial profession. The Western Great Lakes Region of the ASPRS is one of 17 regions nationwide and consists of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Indiana, and northern Illinois. There are four universities with ASPRS student chapters in the Western Great Lakes Region: Indiana State University, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Minnesota, and Michigan Technological University.
As part of our continuing support for outreach and education, the WGL-ASPRS Region Board has recently authorized a program to provide financial support for students actively engaged in the ASPRS organization. Two awards of up to $500.00 each will be made to support travel for undergraduate or graduate students who plan on participating in an eligible conference in 2013.
Selection for reimbursement will be competitive, and will require at a minimum, student membership in ASPRS and confirmed participation as a volunteer or presenter at the ASPRS National Conference or another eligible conference in 2013.
For more details, click on the "Scholarships" tab on the WGL Web site. The deadline for consideration is January 15, 2013.
