The MAGIP Grants and Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce the 2022 awards for Higher Education Scholarships. Despite the ongoing pandemic and challenges of online learning and living, MAGIP was fortunate to receive high quality applications from undergraduate and graduate students alike. While we would like to support all submitted projects, we identified two exceptional Higher Education Scholarship proposals that we are delighted to fund this year. These scholarships will be distributed to one highly motivated undergraduate student, and one Master’s degree student. Furthermore, we are excited to distribute these awards across the Continental Divide and support one student at the University of Montana, W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation, and one student at Montana State University, Department of Earth Sciences.
Two (2) scholarships totally $3,000 were awarded to undergraduate or first-year graduate students studying GIS at a Montana college or university through the MAGIP Higher Education GIS Scholarship.
