Each candidate must submit a poster and a report demonstrating their use of Esri technology in a special project, lab work, or interesting research use in a specific setting (e.g., promoting education, conservation, disaster response, urban planning, business, engineering, social science, etc.). Information about the required format is available online through the scholars web portal and can also be requested from the Scholarship Coordinator.
The poster and report must be received by June 1. A candidate will not be confirmed as a scholarship recipient and the award will not be processed until these documents have been received. Requests for exceptions or extensions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If a candidate has not submitted the required deliverables AND has not arranged for an extension by June 1, they will forfeit their scholarship.
Candidates are encouraged to submit their report as a story map instead of a formal written report. The story map must be shared to the Esri Canada GIS Scholarship Recipients group in ArcGIS Online and preferably be shared publicly. Note that candidates must submit a poster regardless of the format they choose for the report.
