2006 Scholarship Winners By Banette Kritzky, Scholarship Chair
The Scholarship Committee has received the names of the student scholarship winners for 2006. Eleven Minnesota colleges and universities have approved GIS programs, and three have both graduate and undergraduate programs. Each program is allowed to identify one of their best students as a MnGIS/LIS scholarship winner.
