USGIF Launches 2022 Scholarship Campaign

Foundation seeks donations toward collegiate geospatial intelligence education.


The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation announces the launch of the 2022 USGIF Scholarship Campaign, its most ambitious fundraising effort to date. Since starting the scholarship program in 2004, USGIF has demonstrated its commitment to GEOINT education by awarding more than $1.5 million in scholarships to highly deserving students, from high school seniors to Ph.D. levels. Through the scholarship program, USGIF increases, diversifies, and provides equitable access to quality learning, developing the geospatial intelligence community of today and tomorrow.

USGIF is committed to developing future geospatial intelligence leaders through access to education.” said USGIF CEO Ronda Schrenk. “The vision for our scholarship program is to build a community of ethical and dedicated leaders who use their knowledge and competencies to both strengthen their local communities and have a global impact.”

To pursue this vision, USGIF relies on donations from our generous community to turn students’ dreams into reality. Contributors to the giving campaign help secure and diversify the education of the country’s future GEOINT analysts, cartographers, human geographers, data scientists, software developers, engineers, and other in-demand professionals.

All donations go directly to students in need, with the assurance that their ideas will become future contributions that advance the GEOINT tradecraft and accelerate innovation. Any amount helps USGIF support the next geospatial generation. Donate today! All donations are tax deductible. Donations to USGIF’s Scholarship Campaign may be made via the USGIF Member Portal, PayPal, AmazonSmile, or by check.
