Monique Hassman, a GIS Certificate recipient in 2008 currently working towards a PhD degree in Anthropology, has been awarded a Damon Anderson Scholarship for 2016-17.
The Wisconsin Land Information Association (WLIA) established the Damon Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund to help students working toward a degree related to land information (such as geographic information systems, geography, and urban planning). This scholarship is funded through donations to the fund from private individuals, organizations, and other funding activities of WLIA. Four scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each will be distributed by the WLIA Board of Directors. The scholarship will also include a one year student membership and free registration to the WLIA 2017 Annual Conference.
