Marble-Boyle AAG & MFSA research fellowship award
MFSA & The Association of American Geographer’s Marble Fund for Geographic Science joined together to propose new Undergraduate Achievement Awards.
The Association of American Geographer’s Marble Fund for Geographic Science recently announced the new Marble-Boyle Undergraduate Achievement Awards. These awards aim to recognize excellence in academic performance by undergraduate students from the United States and Canada who are putting forth a strong effort to bridge geographic science and computer science as well as to encourage other students to embark upon similar programs.
Each year the Marble-Boyle awardees will be eligible to compete for an additional research fellowship award that is being offered by the MicroGIS Foundation for Spatial Analysis (MFSA). In addition to access to research facilities, the MFSA fellowship will cover all transportation and housing costs for up to four months of work with MFSA in Lausanne. Depending upon the time of year, there will also be an opportunity to audit courses at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) or, in summer, to receive specific training available from MFSA.
