Nelson Institute Environmental Observation and Informatics (EOI) professional master's candidate, Alana Herro has been named the winner of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Wolf Scholarship. Awarded to students who showcase a passion and talent for teaching surveying mapping or photogrammetry, this award is named after the late UW-Madison professor, Paul R. Wolf, who made significant educational and academic contributions to the field.

"I'm deeply honored to receive the Paul R. Wolf scholarship, particularly in light of Professor Wolf's many contributions to the field, ASPRS, and UW-Madison,” said Alana Herro. “I'm also extremely grateful to the faculty and staff of the UW as their help was paramount in winning this award."

In particular, Herro would like to thank Environmental Observation and Informatics Program Coordinator Sarah Graves, who alerted Herro to the scholarship and served as a guide during the application process. Herro would also like to thank her adviser, Mutlu Ozdogan and professor Steve Ventura, who both wrote letters of recommendation for her.

The awards will be presented on Wednesday, January 30, at 8:30 a.m. during the ASPRS Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
