NZ GiC would like to congratulate Sean Bragg of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu for being picked as our 2018 candidate to receive the SCGIS Scholarship!

We had many approaches about the scholarship this year, and Sean’s came out on top by our judging panel.

Winning SCGIS Scholars attend:

– Specialized GIS training at the University of California, Davis Campus
– ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro and web-application training at Esri head-office in Redlands, California
– The ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California
– The SCGIS Annual Conference in Monterey Peninsula, California

NZ SCGIS/GiC is allowed to pick one candidate each year to be nominated to US SCGIS who will then pick 15-20 candidates from over 90 applications around the world to receive the scholarship.

As a consolation should Sean not be one of those picked, he will be attending the NZ Esri User Conference. We would like to thank the NZ Esri User Group for their continual financial support of our scholarship program and wish Sean good luck!
