Application Deadline - The application deadline for the 2015 awards year is October 31st, 2014.
ASPRS is pleased to offer twelve awards totaling more than $50,000 in value. Available to both undergraduate and graduate student-members of ASPRS and others, these resources have been generated with the intention of advancing academic and professional goals within the fields of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and related disciplines. ASPRS recognizes that students are the future of these rapidly evolving fields and encourages all who are qualified to take advantage of these unique opportunities.
Awards are available in the form of cash, travel grants, and data. To be eligible, you must be enrolled in an accredited college or university, and you must be a member of ASPRS for many, but not all, awards. All awards ask that you submit samples of your work and research goals as part of your application, and that you submit a report to ASPRS outlining your research accomplishments upon completion of your grant period.
The Presentation of the Awards will take place at the “Installation of Officers and Awards Meeting” (or other times as indicated) held during the Annual (Spring) Conference of ASPRS
Please see each award description for more details, as each one has specific requirements. You may also want to check out our career brochure, "Shape the Future" for more information on the career opportunities in photogrammetry and remote sensing.
Each award has specific application instructions. General instructions for all applicants are listed here.
Please note that electronic submissions of all applications are now required. Paper applications will not be accepted.
NEW FOR 2015
The DigitalGlobe Foundation Award for the Application of High-Resolution Digital Satellite Imagery will make available one new collection of imagery in addition to the archive imagery previously available:
In addition to archive imagery, applicants may apply for one new collection from any of DigitalGlobe’s five satellites (IKONOS, QuickBird, GeoEye-1, WorldView-1, and WorldView-2), not exceeding 500 square kilometres. Grant of a new collection may not compete with areas experiencing high demand for satellite resources or with DigitalGlobe Regional Affiliates (Contact the DigitalGlobe Foundation for details). This is limited to one new collection that will be granted within one calendar year, conditioned upon satellite availability and a strong application.
