GIS for community
Esri Indonesia Fellowship Program
The Esri Indonesia Fellowship Program has been created to help more students better utilise Geographic Information System (GIS) technology when conducting their research.
The initiative awards US$500 to select tertiary students in their final year of study – giving them the opportunity to devote more resources to their GIS projects.
Esri Indonesia – in partnership with a number of universities and institutions – chooses two students per campus (annually) to each receive the grant.
Universities and institutions currently offering the fellowship are:
- Bandung Institute of Technology, West Java
- Gadjah Mada University, Java (Yogyakarta)
- Hasanuddin University, South Sulawesi
- Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology, East Java
- Mulawarman University, East Kalimantan
Congratulations to all our fellowship grant recipients in 2015.
