Each year at the Esri Uuser Conference, up to 60 students take part in the Student Assistantship program, giving them the opportunity to network with fellow students and GIS professionals from around the world. Student assistants spend the week monitoring sessions, working at attendee registration, and assisting with overall conference logistics. In exchange, they can attend technical sessions and social events, visit the Solutions Expo, and explore beautiful San Diego.
The program is open to graduate students and fourth-year undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university and are familiar with GIS software and geospatial applications. Applications are due April 15.
