Graduate Student Paper Awards

The GSG Awards Committee invites graduate students presenting in any GSG-sponsored session at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers to participate in the specialty group's Student Paper Award competition. Graduate students from all branches of geomorphology are encouraged to submit an application for consideration. Separate awards of $250 can be given for Masters and Ph.D. students.

To be eligible for the award, students must be members of the AAG and the Geomorphology Specialty Group and registered to give a first-authored presentation in a GSG-sponsored session. The subject matter may deal with any aspect of geomorphology. Papers are evaluated on the research contribution to the field of geomorphology and on the effectiveness of the presentation. Competitors will be acknowledged at the GSG business meeting, and award winners will be announced after the annual meeting and publicized in the AAG Newsletter.

Your application package must include:

  • a cover letter indicating your graduate degree status, and the date, time, session number, session chair contact information, and location of your presentation
  • one copy of the 250 word abstract submitted to the AAG

To be considered for the 2017 award, the Awards Committee must receive these materials and any supporting documentation by February 29, 2017.

Please submit materials electronically to the Awards Committee Chair:
