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!

The short version of the story is that I fell in love with maps after travelling much of the world. Then I got interested in making maps and then I got interested in making the things that make maps because they are so cool. My curiosity knows no bounds and it is my pleasure to share my findings with you!
