Canada's 2015 Esri Young Scholar Award winner and honourable mentions

May 22, 2015 Krista Amolins

This year, colleges and universities across Canada received 22 applications for the Esri Young Scholar Award—a record number. Find out who was selected as the 2015 Esri Young Scholar for Canada and the top candidates from PhD, Masters, undergraduate and college programs.

The Esri Young Scholar Award recognizes exemplary work in geospatial sciences. Although traditionally geospatial sciences fall within the field of geography and geomatics, this year's applicants included students from such diverse disciplines as forestry, environmental studies, anthropology, archaeology and even business.

The judging panel comprised faculty members from four universities in Canada, plus the Director, Education and Research, at Esri Canada. Thank you to all of the judges for their time and effort!

Congratulations to the top ranked students:
