TIF Travel Grant Awards

TIF updates its PowerPoint Presentation
The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) has updated its PowerPoint presentation. The new version is downloadable from https://www.isprs.org/foundation/ (just below the information about the TIF brochure). This PowerPoint presentation is available to anyone in the ISPRS community, so please take advantage of it and use it to:
- Publicize the work of TIF
- Entice students and early-career researchers to apply for awards
- Attract donations
- Encourage members of your audience to serve TIF as trustees or committee members.
The download is the original PowerPoint (.pptx file), so that you can modify it to meet your needs, for example adding your name as presenter, the date, etc., and perhaps hiding some slides if there is too much detail for your audience or time slot. There is additional information to help you in the Notes pages.
We welcome comments, criticisms and suggestions for improvements – please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.

New Member of the TIF Audit Committee
TIF’s Audit Committee is perhaps less well known that its other committees, though it has its own web page, https://www.isprs.org/foundation/committees/audit_committee.aspx. Its terms of reference are quite extensive, but its most important role by far is the annual review of the TIF accounts prepared by TIF Finance Officer Marguerite Madden. TIF is delighted that a new member has joined the Audit Committee, Prof. Dr. Qihao Weng, professor of geography, Indiana State University, USA. Qihao will join Laurent Polidori (France) and John Trinder (Australia) in supporting the Audit Committee chair, Shailesh Nayak (India). Welcome, Qihao.
