The SCGRG offers an annual prize of £100 for the best Undergraduate Dissertation in Social and Cultural Geography. We also announce a runner-up prize. Both prize-winners also receive a year’s personal subscription to the journal Social & Cultural Geography published by Taylor & Francis. Please see the mission statement for our definition of what is considered social and cultural geography.
Nominated dissertations should be: an outstanding theoretical and/or empirical piece of work; usually over 10,000 words in length; submitted for formal assessment in the preceding academic year to a UK Higher Education Institution for a BA/BSc level degree programme in geography; written in English. We are looking to reward both excellent scholarship and innovation in the study of social and cultural geography. 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 prizes.
Nominations are requested from the Head of Department or Dissertation Convenor by the Friday 8th July. All dissertations should be submitted as a single pdf file of less than 5MB in size with a post-September email and contact address for the student. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. For further queries about the SCGRG Undergraduate Dissertation Prize, please contact the dissertation convener Richard Scriven email@example.com Department of Geography, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland.
