Undergraduate Dissertation Prize

The EGRG awards a prize each year for the best UK Undergraduate Dissertation in Economic Geography, with a £50 cash reward.

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 Annual General Meeting, usually in late-August/September.

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 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 Prizes Officer.
