MAGIP Grants and Scholarships

Each year the Education Committee administers MAGIP's K-12 Grants and Higher Education Scholarship Programs. In 2013 the MAGIP K-12 Curriculum Grants were renamed the MAGIP Van Shelhamer Memorial K-12 Education Grants in memory of Clinton 'Van' Shelhamer.

Student Representative Program

Established in January 2015 at The University of Montana and Montana State University, this program seeks to foster professional development and engage students in networking opportunities within the Montana GIS Community. 

University Scholarships

The University of Montana and Montana State University offer scholarships based on endowment funds that MAGIP contributed to. For more information, please click on the following links for the MSU Earth Sciences Graduate Scholarship and the UM Zuuring/MAGIP scholarship.
