The Kansas Association of Mappers (KAM) is now accepting applications online for the John Cowan Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship provides financial assistance to students within the State of Kansas pursuing a professional career in the field of Geography attained through a geographic-focused education.
The successful applicant must:
- Be enrolled as an undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or graduate student in a post-secondary educational institution within the State of Kansas.
- Be enrolled in coursework that is necessary to begin a career in a Geography-based profession.
- Be able to show the intent to make Geography or a Geography-related career the major focus of your higher education.

K. John Cowan, one of KAM’s most respected members, passed away in February 2010 after a battle with cancer. John was passionate and outgoing about the importance of geographic knowledge, and this scholarship seeks to symbolically carry on John’s passion by providing financial assistance to those with a desire for a higher education in geography.
