Second Intergraph research grant opportunity recognizes geographic information science education and research community initiatives.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions, in collaboration with the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), announced an Intergraph research grant opportunity for UCGIS members. This offering marks the second research grant opportunity from Intergraph to a UCGIS member and represents Intergraph's continued commitment to the evolution of geographic information sciences (GIS). The announcement came at the UCGIS Winter Meeting 2004 being held in Washington, D.C.

The research grant is open to any member using or intending to use Intergraph's technology as the foundation for geospatial research. The Intergraph research grant will award $5,000 cash funding and a $50,000 software donation in recognition of an exceptional and innovative applied research proposal submitted by a UCGIS member. For information on submitting proposals, deadlines, and other details e-mail execdir@ucgis.org.

Qualified applicants will also be invited to join the Intergraph Registered Research Laboratory Program, which provides a comprehensive software and support offering valued at $125,000 in exchange for two research papers per year. This program has grown to more than 170 members internationally.

In addition to the grant offering, Intergraph is participating in the UCGIS Young Scholars Program, which provides financial support for emerging scientists in the GIS community to attend UCGIS events. This year's Young Scholar's Program recipient, Tarek Rashed, assistant professor of geography and associate director, Center for Spatial Analysis, University of Oklahoma, is attending the UCGIS meeting under the financial sponsorship of Intergraph to further his knowledge of cutting-edge methodologies and practices relating to GIS with other scientists and professionals.
