Four students receive scholarships in remote sensing, geospatial technologies

Four UND graduate students will receive scholarships for 2010-2011 to promote their professional development in remote sensing and geospatial technologies.

The four master’s degree candidates, each of whom will receive a $500 scholarship, are:

  • Nels Anderson, Wautoma, Wis., Department of Geography
  • Annmarie Krmpotich, Sartell, Minn., Department of Biology
  • Jeremy Smith, Draper, Utah, Department of Space Studies
  • Dustin Van Thuyne, Mankato, Minn., Department of Biology

The scholarships are awarded through the Department of Geography by NorthDakotaView, an organization dedicated to promoting remote sensing and geospatial technologies in North Dakota.

NorthDakotaView is a member of the AmericaView Consortium, which establishes and assists with education and training curricula within colleges and universities throughout the state and enhancing technology transfer, applied research efforts, and workforce training.

The NorthDakotaView’s mission is to support the successful acquisition and use of remotely sensed data and geospatial technologies at minimal to no cost for training, education, and applied research within North Dakota's higher education institutions and bring these technologies into the hands of the public.
