CaGIS Student Scholarship Awards

From 2013-19, CaGIS awarded graduate Student Scholarships for students whose research and accomplishments supported the mission of CaGIS. The scholarships recognized academic achievement and encouraged the continuing success of outstanding cartography and geographic information science students. The scholarships also recognized achievement and potential for achievement in original research advancing the specific disciplines of cartography or GIScience.
