2017 Summer of Maps - Nonprofit Application

Additional Info

  • Opportunity Title: 2017 Summer of Maps - Nonprofit Application
  • Organization-Sponsor: Azavea
  • Deadline: Feb 5, 2017 at 10:30pm
  • Location (if applicable): City, State
  • Description of Opportunity: Summer of Maps is a 12-week program that provides competitive fellowships to students and matches them with challenging spatial analysis projects with nonprofit organizations. We are a B Corporation, a social enterprise that applies the power of business to effect change. Our mission is to apply geospatial technology for positive social and civic impact as well as to advance the state-of-the-art through research. While we are primarily a software engineering and data analytics firm, we give back to the communities we serve in many ways, including contributions to open data and open source projects, donating a portion of our profits, hackathon participation, and pro bono work.

    Fellows are provided a $5,000 stipend and one-on-one mentoring by staff on Azavea’s Summer of Maps team during their 12-week fellowship while the nonprofit organizations receive sophisticated analysis and visualization of their data. Each fellow works with two nonprofit organizations as part of the Summer of Maps team in Azavea’s Philadelphia office.

    At this stage, we are looking for nonprofit organizations with spatial analysis and geographic visualization needs to submit their project ideas.
