Are you a GIS user? Do you want to gain more experience with GIS? If so, consider applying for the ESRI Summer Internship Program. The Summer Internship Program is available to both undergraduate and graduate students and is a paid program that provides valuable work experience. Would you like to attend a GIS conference this summer? The ESRI International User Conference Student Assistantship Program provides financial assistance to both undergraduates and graduates to attend the conference.
