What is an ECCE Student Associate?

Each institution involved in the ECCE program can select several students to be designated as ECCE Student Associates. An ECCE Student Associate can be thought of as a particularly exceptional student involved in GIS research and/or development, and can be either an undergraduate or graduate student.

Student Associates will gain access to many resources including Esri Canada GIS Training, a premium ArcGIS Developer Subscription, personalized technical assistance from Esri Canada developers, and free student registration at local Esri Canada User Conferences. On top of all these perks, Student Associates will also be able to take advantage of free registration (limit of 2 per ECCE) at the Esri Developer Summit (Palm Springs, CA).

As part of being an ECCE Student Associate, we expect that you will contribute to the ECCE blog and participate in the annual App Challenge. For examples of suitable content for the ECCE blog, please read through the most recent ECCE blog posts. We regularly promote articles posted to the ECCE blog on the @EsriCanada_CE Twitter feed. This is a great opportunity to share GIS-related research you are currently involved in with a larger audience.
