AGIC is offering Student Scholarships for 10 free student registrations and lodging to attend the 2018 AGIC Education and Training Symposium.
Tony Gonzales was a valued member of the Arizona GIS community and committed to the advancement of GIS and GIS education throughout the State. His passing in 2001 was a huge loss for the GIS community. Tony Gonzales was a key figure in the development of GIS at the Arizona Department of Transportation. His enthusiasm for his work was exemplified in all that he did, from teaching GIS courses to serving on many advisory committees, including AGIC. In his memory, each year at the AGIC Conference scholarships are awarded to Arizona GIS students whose work best promotes GIS or GIS education in Arizona. Tony suffered from a condition known as neurofibromatosis. More information about NF can be found through the National NF Foundation website at www.nf.org.
The scholarship includes a full three-day registration, including provided meals*, and a double occupancy room (to be shared with another student) for the nights of September 20th and 21st at the Prescott Resort and Conference Center.
In addition, each student will be given 5 to 10 minutes to speak in the Student Lightning Talks session on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 19, 2018. The Student Lightning Talks allow each student to give a brief presentation highlighting their GIS work.
