The UT Libraries is excited to announce the release of the 2022 Map & Geospatial Collections Explorer Felllowship call for proposals. The UT Libraries Map & Geospatial Collections Fellowship is designed to encourage students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin to develop scholarly and creative projects that utilize or enhance the Libraries’ map and geospatial data resources. These geospatial resources have contributed to the scholarly and creative output of UT scholars for decades and it is the goal of this prize to preserve, augment, and promote these assets so that they can be made more useful and accessible than ever before.
Student and faculty proposals are considered as separate submission categories and will be judged independently. This will allow for two prizes of $1500 each to be awarded during each annual submission cycle, for the best student and best faculty proposals respectively. Award winners will have their work featured in one or more UT Libraries repositories.
