As an educational nonprofit, USGIF strives to expand its educational opportunities beyond the GEOINT Community. The EdGEOcation Giving Campaign will directly support the 2021 USGIF Scholarship Program. Help us reach our $70,000 campaign goal.

EdGEOcation - Giving Fund

Our current EdGEOcation Giving Campaign will directly support the 2021 USGIF Scholarship Program. Help us reach our $70,000 EdGEOcation Giving Campaign goal. All donations are tax deductible.

Since launching the scholarship program in 2004, USGIF has demonstrated its commitment to GEOINT education by awarding more than $1.4 million in scholarships to highly deserving students, from high school to Ph.D. levels. This was possible due to our successful events and membership revenue that provided the much-needed funding.

But, with a cancelled 2020 GEOINT Symposium and limited in-person opportunities to gather and provide us with much needed revenue, our Scholarship program is in danger. We have managed to still keep our promise and provide $103,000 in scholarships in 2020. However, without your help, the 2021 Scholarship program will be significantly reduced. With our 2021 Scholarship Program now open, we are asking you to donate so we can continue to build your workforce pipeline of GEOINT professionals.

DONATE TODAY to help GEOINT students pursue their career goals and grow the future of our community.

Your Donations Directly Support

  • Ten (10) $1,000 scholarships to high school students for a $10,000 goal and;
