ESRI has a student assistantship program as a way for students to get a foot in the door with their human resources department while getting free admission to the ESRI User Conference in San Diego. Seniors and grad students are eligible and will get to spend their week at the UC meeting people behind the scenes while helping make this HUGE conference go.
If you are a graduate student or fourth-year undergraduate student who is currently enrolled in an accredited college or university in the United States and who uses GIS software, you may apply for the student assistantship program.I will admit to being an alum of the program, so I am a bit biased. But, for a student interested specifically in GIS this is an unique opportunity. The application deadline is April 13th.
