Education both on and off the field is an integral part of being a land surveyor- you can't stop learning. Everyday presents a new opportunity to both share your experiences and learn from examples left by others -become better surveyors, together. We hope the next generation will improve the surveying profession but first we must help them understand what it is and its history. Technical training and Scholarships might just be the key to gaining the attention of the next generation. We'll see.. Nevertheless, the opportunities can become buried in the pages of the internet and if someone doesn't come along and curate them into one place, they may not generate enough interest to continue offering them. I am committed to a plan to put land surveying into as many schools as possible. This month I am excited for the Florida Surveying & Mapping conference in St. Pete Beach along with Pinellas Technical College promoting a new and exciting Certification Program for training land surveyors in South Florida.
So i figured I would share this useful batch of Scholarship links (thanks to EDUinreview) which I hope you will either take advantage of as a personal opportunity or share with a young mind and spirit close to you who might just love land surveying as much as you do some day.. We can only hope while swinging a machete..
Each link below is a new opportunity..i even compiled them into a pdf for you to peruse and utilize to get the education you have been hoping for.
Of course...If you happen to know of opportunities not listed here, please be so kind as to drop them in the comments below so that we might add them to this list.
