It's time again for Azavea's Summer of Maps, per Robert Cheetham, the CEO.

I am pleased to announce the 2013 Azavea Summer of Maps.  Summer of Maps offers fellowships to student GIS analysts to perform geographic data analysis for non-profit organizations.  We are going to match up non-profit organizations that have spatial analysis and visualization needs with talented students of GIS analysis to implement projects over a three-month period during the summer.
