The Esri Young Scholars Award celebrates the achievements in geospatial sciences of students around the world. Past winners in Canada have been involved in such diverse research as examining air pollution exposure, evaluating global conservation priorities, and conducting spatiotemporal analyses of kelp distribution. If you are a full-time student at a college or university in Canada and think you have what it takes to be Canada’s 10th Esri Young Scholar, submit your application by April 23, 2021.
Esri Young Scholars are an exemplary group of students who, in normal years, meet in San Diego at the Esri UC and form connections that last well beyond the conference. This year’s Esri Young Scholar from Canada, Spencer Elford, will not have the opportunity to travel, but he will still get to meet Young Scholars from around the world at the virtual UC.
This year’s top-ranked students are four women who explore different aspects of conservation and sustainability in their research. Find out who they are and the work that they are passionate about.
Every year, students from around the world who have been selected as their country’s Esri Young Scholar travel to San Diego to attend the Education Summit and Esri User Conferences. For Canada’s Esri Young Scholar Anne Provencher St-Pierre, it was a rewarding experience to meet, share with and learn from this diverse group.
