This session will provide information about Esri Canada scholarships and prizes. Students considering applying for Trent’s 2017 Esri Canada Scholarship award (applications due on March 3) are encouraged to attend the Scholarship Information Session and give a 5 minute presentation. Scholarship candidates can present a draft of their posters or give a more general presentation about their research explaining how GIS technologies are being used to assist with a research project or major course assignment. We hope this will be a collegial, fun event of sharing and disseminating research activities and GIS interests.
