Is the GIS Scholarship program the same as the Esri Young Scholars Award?
No. Although both the Esri Canada GIS Scholarship program and the Esri Young Scholars Award competition in Canada have similar timelines and requirements, they are two separate programs.
GIS Scholarships are only available to students enrolled at participating institutions. Faculty and staff at each institution set eligibility criteria that are appropriate to their programs and select the recipient. The Esri Young Scholars Award is open to all full-time students in Canada who use Esri technology. Students apply directly to Esri Canada.
