Undergraduate Dissertation Prize
The EGRG awards a prize each year for the best Undergraduate Dissertation in Economic Geography. The prize is sponsored by Sage, and winners receive copies of Global Shift, The Sage Handbook of Economic Geography, and a further £150 worth of Sage books.
An annual call for nominations is emailed to the EGRG listserv in early summer with a deadline of mid-July. The prize winner is then announced at the EGRG AGM in late August.
Nominated dissertations should be: an outstanding theoretical and/or empirical piece of work; usually 10,000 words or more in length; submitted for formal assessment in the current academic year to a UK Higher Education Institution for a BA/BSc level Geography degree programme; include a full set of references and images (as relevant); and to be written in English.
Please note that a department may not submit more than one entry and nominated dissertations should not be submitted for consideration for any other RGS-IBG prizes.
A hard copy of the thesis, along with the dissertation guidelines that were issued to the student, should be forwarded to the EGRG secretary.
