USGIF Funds for Earth-Science Educational Materials

The United States Geospatial Foundation (USGIF), through its recently created James and Susan Clapper Education Initiative Fund, has raised more than $1,600 for area schools to purchase educational materials relating to earth-science studies such as maps, geological tools, compasses, books and related software. Schools interested in using this money should write the USGIF and provide the school’s name, demographics, and a summary of how much money is needed, how the money will be used and who will benefit. Requests should be mailed to USGIF James and Susan Clapper Education Initiative Fund, 2325 Dulles Corner Blvd., Suite 500, Herndon, VA, 20171. The deadline for applications is Friday, Nov. 3.
