The Ken Miller Scholarship for Advanced Remote Sensing Applications is awarded thanks to the generosity of USGIF and Riverside Research and it is named for Mr. Kenneth W. Miller, who is known as a founding father of measurement and signatures intelligence (MASINT),

But more importantly, he developed innovations and techniques that formed the cornerstone for the Center’s national processing, analysis, and reporting of many national level radar, infrared, and optical intelligence sensors still used today.

Full Description

USGIF has awarded $891,000 in scholarships since the program began and they will award $10,000 Ken Miller Scholarship for Advanced Remote Sensing Applications to only one student who the committee finds the most deserving.

The Riverside Research and the United States Geospatial-Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) are proud to offer the Ken Miller Scholarship for Advanced Remote Sensing Applications.

This is a $10,000 scholarship aimed at students who plan to enter the intelligence workforce.

It was offered for the first time in fall 2015 and is funded by sales from the Riverside Research-authored textbook, The Phenomenology of Intelligence-focused Remote Sensing.

What students find amazing about this scholarship is that it is set to be offered once each academic year for the next three years.

Who's eligible?

The scholarship is annually awarded to one master’s student working in or planning to enter the Defense and/or Intelligence workforce.
This scholarship is only available for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents.

USGIF supports promising high school, undergraduate, and graduate students studying geospatial sciences, GIS, geography, and geospatial intelligence-related disciplines, so if you are one of them, you should try your luck with this scholarship once the application process begins.

How to Apply

The timeline is very important to know, so as not to be late with the application submission.

The Application Deadline is extended to May 6th, thus make sure to provide all the necessary documentation prior to that moment.

Late and incomplete applications will not be taken into consideration.

Once the application process begins, all the important information related to the application procedure will be available on the scholarship provider’s official website, as well as the fillable application form.
