This site seems to have a nice list of GIS scholarships, and Google is always helpful in such matters.


Check with local chapters of GIS-oriented organizations, such as GITA and URISA. They often offer scholarships.

  • Quite true, I earned a small scholarship from my state's chapter of URISA – jvangeld Aug 13 '10 at 0:08

If you don't mind becoming part of the Military Industrial Complex, you could apply for a SMART scholarship. The NGA is a participant.


Check within your discipline. Unless you're doing research in theoretical GIS. Really you should be looking at getting a scholarship in your domain (Transportation, Bio, Image analysis, etc.). All these fields have a heavy link to GIS so that broadens the scope of the search
