The Abraham Anson Memorial Scholarship Award was recently established by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) through the ASPRS Foundation from funds donated by an Anson bequest, contributions from the Society and the ASPRS Potomac Region as a tribute to his work in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and long dedicated service to the Society.


The Abraham Anson Memorial Scholarship Award was recently established by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) through the ASPRS Foundation from funds donated by an Anson bequest, contributions from the Society and the ASPRS Potomac Region as a tribute to his work in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and long dedicated service to the Society.  The first time this scholarship will be awarded is at the ASPRS 2009 Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. 

For over six decades, Lt. Col. Abraham Anson, affectionately known as Abe, devoted a considerable period of his life to the cause of the Society in various forums and forms, as an author of many articles, Associate Editor of the Manual of Color Aerial Photography and the first edition of the Manual of Remote Sensing, and the editor of the Proceedings of the Aerial Photography Workshop for the Plant Sciences. He served on the Society and the Potomac Region Boards and numerous committees. After his retirement, Anson assumed the task of compiling the history of the ASPRS and the Potomac Region from its founding days, working countless hours with great dedication for several years. 

The purpose of the award is to encourage undergraduate students currently enrolled or intending to enroll in a U.S. college or university who have an exceptional interest in pursuing scientific research or education in geospatial science or technology related to photogrammetry, remote sensing, surveying and mapping to enter a professional field where they can use the knowledge of this discipline to excel in their profession. This annual scholarship will consist of a certificate and a check in the amount of $1,000 and a one year student membership (new or renewal) in the ASPRS.  The ASPRS Foundation is responsible for managing any funds that may accrue for this award and the total investment return derived there from.

All contributions to this memorial scholarship fund should be made to:
American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Foundation
Abraham Anson Scholarship Fund
5410 Grosvenor Lane. Suite 210
Bethesda, MD  20814-2160
