ASPRS travel assistance offered to students

As part of our continuing support for outreach and education, the Board of Directors of the ASPRS Western Great Lakes Region recently authorized a program to provide financial support for students actively engaged in the ASPRS organization. Two awards of up to $500.00 each will be made to support travel for undergraduate or graduate students who plan on participating in the ASPRS National Conference in the spring of 2012.

Selection for reimbursement will be competitive, and will require at a minimum, student membership in ASPRS and confirmed participation as a volunteer or presenter at the ASPRS conference in Sacramento, CA, March 19 – 23, 2012. Specific requirements for selection can be found on the WGL Web site.  The deadline for consideration is February 1, 2012.
