The Society’s Research Groups support and promote their area of geography and, among other activities, offer both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation prizes.
The annual prizes recognise outstanding work from students at higher education institutions, in the UK and overseas, which contributes to the breadth of research areas covered by geography. Prizes are offered in the areas of geomorphology, economic geography, developing areas, and health and wellbeing to name but a few.
The deadlines for submissions are coming up soon. See the full list and find out more information about entry requirements and the associated deadlines for both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation prizes.
