Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association 2010/2011 Small Grants Program

The Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association is now accepting proposals for its 2010/2011 Small Grants Program; proposals are due on October 31st, 2010. GISCorps started its partnership with GSDI in 2005 by providing GIS volunteers for worthy projects in need of GIS expertise.

If you are associated with an organization that coordinates or supports spatial data infrastructure or Earth Observations Systems (EOS)-related activities in economically disadvantaged nations, GISCorps encourages you to apply for a small grant from GSDI to support your work.

Grants for $2,500 (USD) are intended to support "…national or sub-national activities that foster partnerships, develop in-country technical capacity, improve data compatibility and access, and increase political support for spatial data infrastructure and earth observations application development."
