Donation from Indian Society of Remote Sensing

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) is delighted to announce that it has received a generous donation of $10,000 (US dollars) from the Indian Society of Remote Sensing (ISRS). This will be added to TIF funds and used in the future to support grants, for example for travel to ISPRS-sponsored events. Stewart Walker, chair of the board of trustees of TIF, commented, “We are thrilled to have received such a major donation. We are extremely grateful to president Shri Nilesh Desai, his Executive Council and the members of ISRS. This will help us towards our goal of expanding TIF’s activities to support more students and early-career professionals in the future.”
