Each year, through the National Society of Professional Surveyors Foundation, over $30,000 dollars in scholarships funded by a variety of individuals, companies, and organizations are made available to encourage and support college education in geospatial sciences. These scholarships are a great opportunity for college students in surveying, mapping, geographic information systems, and geodetic science programs.
Recipients of scholarships are selected by a Scholarship Committee drawn from the Board of Trustees of the NSPS Foundation, Inc. and other scholarship funding entities. The committee has the option of awarding no scholarships if its members come to the conclusion that none of the applicants is deserving.
Scholarships will be awarded based on the following criteria:
A) 30% academic record;
B) 30% applicant's statement;
C) 20% letters of recommendation;
D) 20% professional activities;
Degree of financial need will be used, if necessary, to break ties, after the primary criteria have been considered.
