Are you a student using geospatial technologies to further your studies? HIGICC is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2019 Mark Lierman Memorial Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a current college student who has demonstrated an appreciation for and understanding of geospatial data and GIS. The applicant must be enrolled at an accredited college or university and either be attending in Hawaii or have graduated from a high school in Hawaii.
Last year’s recipient, Eszter Collier, a graduate student at UH Hilo, applied her scholarship to her research in mapping biological soil crusts with very high resolution imagery.
The scholarship application deadline is June 14, 2019. Visit the HIGICC website at www.higicc.org/awards for more information!
