Introduction: ASPRS Awards & Scholarships

The ASPRS Awards and Scholarships program is supported by ASPRS members and participating sponsors through contributions to the ASPRS Foundation. For more information or to make a contribution, go to ASPRS Foundation.

Application Deadline - The application deadline for the 2014 awards year is October 18th, 2013.

ASPRS is pleased to offer thirteen 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 below.

Please note that electronic submissions of all applications are now required. Paper applications will not be accepted.

For the 2012 awards year, the minimum award level for all awards was increased to $2000. In 2013, The Francis H. Moffitt Memorial Scholarship was increased in value from $4,000 to $4,500

NEW FOR 2014

BAE Systems no longer supports The BAE Systems Award for Best Student Paper and so this award has been discontinued.

The Francis H. Moffitt Memorial Scholarship is now valued at $5,500, a $1,000 increase.
