Congratulations to Chris Dickerson, Urban Planning Masters and GIS Emphasis student, recipient of this year’s ESRI Student Assistantship. The Student Assistantship Program sponsors up to 60 students every year to attend the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego. Chris is a GIS Certificate student at UWM.
The annual ESRI International User Conference was held in San Diego July 8-12, 2011. “Each year, ESRI hosts an international conference in San Diego, California, where 12,000 software users gather to learn more about GIS technology and share their ideas and knowledge.” The assistantship includes full registration for the conference, hotel accommodations and a small stipend for meals.
All graduate and 4th year undergraduate students who use GIS software are invited to apply for future assistantships.
