Urban Geography dissertation prize

The Urban Geography Research Group (UGRB) is pleased to announce it’s annual Dissertation Prize for 2015. 

The UGRG’s annual undergraduate dissertation prize is for innovative, original and high quality research in urban geography. No substantive area of urban geography is excluded from consideration: we welcome submissions which address any aspect of the social, cultural, economic or political life of cities. Additionally, dissertations may be based on secondary (archival) or primary data, addressing urban issues via a contemporary or historical focus. The winner will receive a prize to the value of £75, and have their dissertation published on the UGRG website (http://urban-geography.org.uk/).

The prize is open to any currently registered undergraduate student in a UK Department of Geography, Planning, Earth Sciences or Environmental Sciences. Whilst it is expected that most such students will be in their third year of study (FT), students in the final year of a 4 year program may be entered for the prize so long as the nominated dissertation has been submitted for an undergraduate (rather than Masters) degree. Entries from year 4 students will be assessed according to higher marking criteria. It is customary for Dissertation Tutors or Heads of Departments to nominate outstanding urban geography dissertations for this prize. Departments may not submit more than one entry. Please note that only electronic submissions will be accepted and considered for the prize.

Please email a pdf or word file of the dissertation to: Priya Vadi (Priya.Vadi.2011@live.rhul.ac.uk).

Deadline: 17 July 2015
