PhD Dissertation Prize

The EGRG awards a prize each year for the best PhD Dissertation in the broad field of Economic Geography.

An annual call for nominations is made in around January/February each year and this is distributed widely via email – including the EGRG listserv – with a usual deadline February.  The prize winner is then announced In May/June. The winner receives £150 in prize money.

In order to be considered for the award, an electronic copy of the thesis should be forwarded to the EGRG PhD Prize Officer. This must be an absolutely final version of a PhD thesis that has passed the degree for which it has been submitted at a UK institution, between January to December in the preceding year. The theses will be reviewed by the EGRG committee.
