USGIF Announces 2014 Scholarship Recipients

$101,000 Presented to Students Pursuing Geospatial Sciences

Herndon, Virginia, Oct 2, 2014 —The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) presented scholarships to 22 students as part of its 2014 USGIF Scholarship Program. The program furthers the advancement of the GEOINT tradecraft by granting scholarship awards to promising students pursuing a degree in the geospatial sciences or a related field. In total, USGIF has awarded $792,000 in scholarship funds since the program began in 2004.

This year, the Foundation granted scholarships to five Ph.D. candidates, seven graduate students, seven undergraduates, and three graduating high school seniors. Each undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate awardee receives $5,000, while high school seniors receive $2,000 toward their education.

“I am proud that the GEOINT Community continues to support USGIF and our scholarship program, and allows us to award these deserving students with scholarships,” said USGIF Director of Academic Programs Dr. R. Maxwell Baber. “The USGIF Scholarship Program annually awards more than $100,000 each year, and this helps ensure the Community will always have a healthy workforce with strong spatial reasoning abilities and highly developed skills in geospatial sciences and technology.”
