Summer of Maps Fellow
- Summer of Maps
- 990 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States
Summer of Maps is a 12-week program that provides competitive fellowships to students and matches them with challenging spatial analysis projects with nonprofit organizations.
The program has several objectives for students:
- Provide a high quality first professional experience for students with advanced geospatial analysis skills in order to prepare them to become the next generation of GIS professionals.
- Develop useful geospatial analysis deliverables that can be used to improve the operations of nonprofit organizations that would otherwise not be able to do so.
Fellows are provided a $6,000 stipend and one-on-one mentoring by the Data Analytics team with support from other Azavea teams during the 12-week fellowship. The nonprofit organizations receive sophisticated analysis and visualization of their data. Each fellow works with two nonprofit organizations as part of the Summer of Maps team in Azavea’s Philadelphia office. Learn more about Azavea here.
