Help TIF prepare for the Nice Congress!

Grants from The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) benefit the international community by enabling improved education, training and tools to be shared with the less privileged, especially those in emerging markets and regions. Attending an ISPRS meeting has time and time again proved to be a valuable experience for the recipients, as can be read in the reports that are regularly published in this eBulletin.

For the ISPRS Congress, in less than 10 months’ time, TIF is hoping to support a large contingent of students from developing countries to attend, and welcomes donations from individuals and companies. Please consider giving generously to the activities of the ISPRS Foundation: https://www.isprs.org/foundation/donations/default.aspx.

TIF News by Stewart Walker

Quite often we include news items about awards from The ISPRS Foundation (TIF), especially travel grants to support participation in Symposia, Congresses and Geospatial Week events. TIF itself is always changing. It was a great honor for me to be invited to attend a meeting of ISPRS Council in Toronto last month, to take part in discussions and give a presentation about the status of TIF. My presentation was well received: Council seemed happy with the work of TIF and its ambition to grow. Two interesting facts that I reported bear repeating: TIF has awarded $223,129 to nearly 200 recipients since 2012; in 2019, TIF is helping to support seven Summer Schools and associated travel grants for the Student Consortium, as well as 27 travel grants for attendance at the Geospatial Week in Enschede, The Netherlands.
