H.L. "Sy" Seyler Undergraduate GIScience Scholarship
The Seyler Undergraduate GIScience Scholarship, supported by alumni, friends, and faculty of the Department of Geography, is the newest undergraduate scholarship and is bestowed in the name of emeritus faculty member H.L.

Dr. Seyler retired in 2000 after having devoted nearly three decades of professional service to the advancement of both geography and geographic information science at Kansas State University.
In addition to publishing numerous articles in academic journals, his teaching touched the lives of a generation of geographers and geographic information system (GIS) professionals across the nation. Dr. Seyler was a GIS pioneer in the State of Kansas and was a driving force behind the creation of the successful Geographic Information Systems Spatial Analysis Laboratory (GISSAL) at Kansas State University.
