This year at the Esri User Conference, we are offering university-level students full conference access at the discounted rate of $100! This is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the GIS community, network with peers and professionals, and learn the tremendous impact GIS is making in the world and how you can be a part of it! If you can't attend the entire week, there is also a 1 day option for students that is complimentary.

Your full conference registration (again, only $100 for university students!) gives you access to 5 days of expert-led workshops, sessions, networking events, hands on training and demonstrations on latest GIS technology, and so much more! Esri UC will take place July 8 - 12, 2019 in San Diego, California at the San Diego Convention Center.

Is there a way for students to apply for scholarships that would cover transportation and lodging costs?  Those 2 items are the barriers our students have to participating in the conference.

Hey Rosemary Boone‌,  are there any digital marketing assets for this awesome opportunity Esri is providing?

Thanks,

It is definitely an awesome opportunity! I do not have any at the moment that I can provide, however you are more than welcome to share this blog via social or other available channel  

Esri Contributor

Thank you for your question, Robbyn. Providing extremely low cost registration is the closest we can get to lowering the barriers of participation by college-level students.

Hi Rosemary Boone! Is there a registration deadline for this offer?

Esri Contributor

Hi there! Currently there is no deadline for the student rate.

Hi Rosemary Boone! I have a question: I just graduated from Texas State University and I am currently working as an intern in GIS Services in my university, am I still qualified to register to the User Conference as a university-level student with the discounted rate $100, as you said in the blog post? 

I am looking forward to hear from you soon.

Hi Thanh, the University Student rate for the user conference will apply if you're currently enrolled as a student at your higher education institution.

I'm a Geography Grad student at Portland State. Hoping to make the conference but lodging is the big expense. I found this great way to save $$$...gonna borrow a friends small towable RV and stay at these venues...it's $129 for a whole year (divided by a couple/three friends, way cheaper than AirB&B even!)...

I'm not affiliated (or even a member yet!), but think it's just a great idea!

Do you know if this student rate will be available for the 2020 UC?

Thanks!

Hi Allen - my apologies for the delayed response. There's no official approval as of yet. Stand by for updates via GeoNet for student registration for UC 2020. Thanks-
