Florida West Coast Land Surveyors Association scholarship

by Tampa Bay Surveying and Mapping Scholarship Fund

This scholarship fund was started in 1989 with the purpose of providing scholarships to students pursuing a degree in surveying and mapping (Geomatics). The Fund began as The Hillsborough Land Survey Scholarship Fund and later changed its name to the current Tampa Bay Surveying and Mapping Scholarship Fund (the Fund) as being more representative of the professional and the geographic area it wished to serve.

The Fund will receive applications from and may grant scholarships to students enrolled or about to enroll in a course of study leading to a 4-year degree in Geomatics.

The Fund was set up primarily for students who reside in the Tampa Bay area but students living elsewhere will be considered if funds are available. Scholarships are paid after a student has completed an approved course with a grade of “C” or better.

Applications are available by request from the corporate address above or via link from this website. Completed applications should be e-mailed or mailed to Ken Nelson, Current Chairman.
