Jessie Rossbach Memorial Scholarship

 Instructions and Application

NMGIC annually awards one scholarship worth up to $1000 to students in geospatial technology / geographic information science who are attending institutions of higher education in New Mexico. The intent of the scholarship is to support student projects in geospatial technology / geographic information science; students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply – the key is the project’s subject matter must be geospatial in nature.

To be considered for the award, students must submit:

  1. A completed application
  2. A brief description of the project for which they intend to use the scholarship money
  3. Their resume
  4. Two letters of support to the NMGIC Scholarship Committee (see address below).

Students awarded the scholarship are required to present the their project’s results at one of the regularly scheduled semi-annual NMGIC meetings.

The scholarship will be awarded to individuals in care of their academic department.
