CRSS Undergraduate, Master's and Doctoral Scholarships
The CRSS Undergraduate, Master's and Doctoral Scholarships were established in 2008 to recognise excellence in remote sensing and to encourage students enrolled at a Canadian university or college to continue their studies in this field. Up to 3 Scholarships may be awarded each year. Each award will be $500, with one scholarship each awarded to students pursuing (1) an undergraduate degree, (2) a Master's degree, and (3) a Doctoral degree. In addition to the cash award, recipients will also receive a one-year complimentary junior membership in the Canadian Remote Sensing Society, and a one-year subscription to the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing.
You must be a member in good standing of CRSS at the time of application (or have submitted an application for membership, which can be processed with the Scholarship application). The Scholarships will be open to students registered in an appropriate (acredited) undergraduate or graduate program at a Canadian university or college. Undergraduate applicants will normally have completed at least one course with a significant remote sensing component, and have plans to continue their remote sensing education. Previous award winners at a given level are not eligible to receive the same award again (e.g. if you have received the undergraduate scholarship, you are ineligible for the undergraduate scholarship in subsequent years). Students may, however, receive a CRSS Scholarship at a different level than a previous award (e.g. a previous undergraduate scholarship recipient is eligible for the Master’s or Doctoral Scholarship).
Only one submission per level from each department or administrative unit within a university or college will be considered, with any internal selections being the responsibility of the department or
