Grants focus on the advancement of geographic sciences in the classroom.

Celebrating education excellence, Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions today announced it will award GeoMedia education grants valued at more than $6 million dollars. The grants will recognize innovative teaching that advances the use of geographic information sciences by educators and students in the classroom. The GeoMedia Education Grants Program will award grants on two levels, including 1) community colleges, technical schools, and universities, and 2) K-12 and primary and secondary schools.
