Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, Blue Marble is offering students a chance to win a US$500 scholarship by submitting the results of a research project involving the use of Global Mapper. Open to any undergraduate or graduate student, the impetus behind this annual program is to encourage students to explore the full depth of functionality available in the software while expanding their core competency in the field of GIS.
The Global Mapper Scholarship Program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students at any recognized institute of higher education.
Participants may submit a written thesis, project report, or poster on any topic or theme. To be considered for the scholarship award, Global Mapper must be employed for data creation or collection; analysis or processing; and/or final presentation. All submissions must be written in English.
To be eligible for the 2018-2019 scholarship, entries must be received no later than December 31, 2018.
After the submission deadline, all entries will be reviewed by the Blue Marble Scholarship Committee, and the winner will be notified no later than January 31, 2019.
Blue Marble will publish an overview of the applicant's research in a case study or similar form along with the announcement of award.
