Jasmin Leila Award

The Jasmin Leila Award is given in celebration of Jasmin Leila Sidaway.

The Award, which has been running since 2008, is given as a £250 supplement to one of the projects supported under the Society’s
Small Research Grant scheme or as an independent award.

In tribute to Jasmin, the project to be recognised by the Award will have a focus on either:

  • Medical and health geography
  • Performance (especially any aspects of music, theatre, fashion and/or dance) and their geographies
  • Transnational communities
