This annual scholarship for an undergraduate student consists of a plaque, a check in the amount of $500 and a one-year student membership in ASPRS.

Friends and colleagues of Kenneth J. Osborn (1952-2004) have helped establish the Kenneth J. Osborn Memorial Scholarship as a tribute to him from donated funds administered by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).

Recognized nationally and internationally, Osborn was an outstanding practitioner of surveying, mapping, photogrammetry, and geospatial information technology, and a great friend of ASPRS. As a professional cartographer with the U.S. Geological Survey, Osborn made significant contributions to these fields.

The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and commend college students who display exceptional interest, desire, ability, and aptitude to enter the profession of surveying, mapping, photogrammetry, or geospatial information and technology. In addition, the scholarship recognizes students who excel at an aspect of the profession that Osborn demonstrated so very well, that of communications and collaboration.

This annual scholarship consists of a plaque and a check in the amount of $500 and a one-year student membership (new or renewal) in the society.

The scholarship is made to an undergraduate student currently enrolled or intending to enroll in a college or university in the United States, who is pursuing a program of study in preparation for entering the profession in the general area of surveying, mapping, photogrammetry, or geospatial information and technology.

Application requirements are outlined on the ASPRS website. Presentation of the scholarship will take place at the ASPRS Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland in March 2005. The recipient of the scholarship is obligated to provide the society with a written final report of his/her scholastic accomplishments during the period for which the award is granted. This report must be submitted by June of the year following receipt of the scholarship.

A complete description of the awards offered and an application (in PDF format) can be obtained at the ASPRS website.

Founded in 1934, ASPRS is an international professional organization of 6,500 geospatial data professionals. ASPRS is devoted to advancing knowledge and improving understanding of the mapping sciences to promote responsible application of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems and supporting technologies.
