European Specialty Group Graduate Student Paper Competition
The European Specialty Group is pleased to announce the 2013 ESG Graduate Student Paper Competition. We are inviting submissions of conference papers from graduate students who presented (or are going to present) at a regional or national geography meeting (or related interdisciplinary conference) between March 2015 and April 2016. This award is a great opportunity for up-and-coming geographers with research interests in Europe to bring attention to their work and to offset the costs of conference travel. The winner will receive a cash award of $300 and a complimentary ticket to the AAG Annual Meeting Awards Luncheon to be held on the last day of the San Francisco AAG meeting on Saturday, April 2, 2016.
To make this competition a success, we ask that faculty members encourage their graduate students at all levels to enter the competition. Papers must focus on European geography and students must be members of the ESG in order to be eligible. Papers should be double-spaced, 12-point font, and not more than 15 pages in length (including everything). Please submit two files. One file should consist of the paper without the author’s name. A separate file should include the author’s name, institution, level of study (MA, PhD), when and at what conference the paper was/will be presented.
Those interested in participating should send a copy of their paper by email as a Word attachment to Christian Sellar at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 4th 2016. Early submissions are encouraged; late submissions will not be considered. Please direct any questions you may have about the paper competition to Christian Sellar.
