Summer of Maps
 is an opportunity for students to apply their skills in geospatial analysis to help a non-profit organization. They set students up with a mentor from the field to guide them on two different projects in a diverse selection of sectors. What makes them different from many internships or student job experiences is that they train you and allow you to essentially be your own project manager. From writing to proposals to presenting to clients, this experience will undoubtedly give students a well-rounded feel of what it is like to work as a geospatial professional. Plus, this is a paid experience! The fellowship will last for three months.

Experience professionals can also apply to be a mentor here.

The deadline is on March 15 and fellowships begin on June 1. Good luck to all applicants!

I fell in love with everything geo after travelling and living in many places in the world. For me, it's a fun and rather interesting lens to see the world through! We live in a time where technology makes the world so much smaller, and we have to leverage this to build a vibrant community.
