As students head back to the classroom it is time to start thinking about ESIP student opportunities.
In March 2012, the ESIP Federation lost long-time member, Rob Raskin. Rob was soft-spoken, easy-going, wise and an Earth science information partner extraordinaire. Rob was a mentor to many aspiring Earth science data professionals. In collaboration with Rob’s family, the ESIP Federation and the Foundation for Earth Science remember Rob and his dedication to support the next generation of Earth science data and technology leaders through the Robert G. Raskin Scholarship.
The scholarship is open to a current graduate student in good standing at an institution affiliated with the ESIP Federation. To be considered for the scholarship, students must be studying an Earth science, computer science or closely related discipline and have an interest in fields related to current technical, scientific or applied activities of the ESIP Federation.
