Angela Stokes Scholarship
Congratulations to Peter Miller, 2011 Anglea Stokes Scholarship Recipient.
The purpose of this scholarship program is to encourage and support students to undertake and complete commendable GIS projects. The program is in memory of Angela Stokes, a previous winner of this scholarship who passed away February 1st, 2006.
Maine GIS User Group (MEGUG) hopes to make awards annually, providing financial assistance in the form of scholarships to undergraduate students, and grants to educators. Our goal is to award one $1000 scholarship and two $500 grants each year. Maine college and university undergraduates are eligible for the $1000 scholarship. Maine educators of grades K-12 and Maine youth group leaders of the same grade groups can apply for the $500 grants.
Continuing Education Credits
MEGUG is pleased to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to our members and to participants at certain MEGUG-sponsored events. Please see the following link to the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) for information regarding CEUs: IACET CEU Information here.
MEGUG calculates and tracks CEUs for our sponsored instructional offerings that are longer than 1 hour (or 0.1 CEU). Offerings typically include workshops, training sessions, etc. They do not include project presentations at meetings or roundtables. Presently, applicable offerings occur at the Annual Meeting.
The process is simple and straightforward. Participants sign a sheet at the conclusion of an instructional offering. The instructor confirms participation and provides the sheets to the Education Coordinator or to the Administrative Assistant for validation. The information is then entered into a database. A CEU Activity Report is available upon request in digital or hardcopy form by contacting the MEGUG Administrative Assistant. MEGUG will keep a record of the CEUs for 7 years.
MEGUG is also pleased to offer preapproval of MEGUG events for recertification credits to members of the Maine Association of Assessing Officers (MAAO). As with other approved educational opportunities, a sign up sheet will be provided at the meeting for those topics that qualify for credit. The list will be forwarded to Maine Revenue Services for credit.
