Announcing the AAG Economic Geography Specialty Group 2018 Student Award 
Competitions

The AAG Economic Geography Specialty Group makes three annual awards in 
economic geography, with the results announced each year at the AAG Annual 
Meeting<http://www.aag.org/cs/annualmeeting> (in New Orleans April 10-14).

Graduate Student Research Award (deadline: 2 March 2018)

This competitive award ($750) is designed to support innovative and original 
graduate student research that is likely to make a significant contribution to 
the development of the field of economic geography. Proposals will be judged on 
the basis of the theoretical and substantive significance of the research, and 
the appropriateness of the methods employed. Funds can be used towards travel, 
subsistence, equipment and/or other normal research expenses. Applications 
should include (a) a one-page vita, with full contact details, (b) a two-page 
statement, detailing the nature of the proposed research and its expected 
contribution, and (c) a one page provisional budget, detailing the uses to 
which award funds would be put. Awardees must be registered graduate students 
throughout the duration of the award.

Two EGSG Board members will review the applications and make a recommendation 
to the EGSG Board. Please send your submission, in PDF format, to Abigail Cooke 
at amco...@buffalo.edu<mailto:amco...@buffalo.edu>.

Best Dissertation (deadline: 2 March 2018)

Students completing a PhD dissertation in the preceding calendar year (2017), 
are eligible for the best dissertation competition. An award of $500 is offered 
for the best dissertation. Please note that the dissertation must be dated 2017 
to be eligible for this year's award.

Two EGSG Board members will review the applications and make a recommendation 
to the EGSG Board. Please send your dissertation, in PDF format, to Peter 
Kedron at pked...@okstate.edu<mailto:pked...@okstate.edu>.

Best Student Paper (deadline: 2 March 2018)

Students presenting a paper at the AAG annual conference (or who presented a 
paper any time in the 12 months preceding the 2018 conference) are eligible for 
the best student paper competition. An award of $200 is offered for the best 
student paper. Papers should be in English, and no longer than 15 pages 
double-spaced in 12-point font (including explanatory footnotes/endnotes, but 
excluding references, figures and tables) with an additional 100-200 word 
abstract. And yes, you can submit your planned paper for the 2018 Annual 
Meeting in New Orleans, but it obviously has to be written ahead of time!

Two EGSG Board members will review the submitted papers and make a 
recommendation to the EGSG Board. Please send your submission, in PDF format, 
to Kean Fan Lim at 
keanfan....@nottingham.ac.uk<mailto:keanfan....@nottingham.ac.uk>.

Good luck everyone!
The EGSG Board
