Entries are invited for the TGRG undergraduate dissertation prize which is awarded to the best undergraduate dissertation that focuses on any aspect of the geography of mobility and transport, undertaken at a UK university, and which demonstrates conceptual and/or methodological sophistication.
The prize is open to any student taking an undergraduate level degree in geography of transport and/or mobility at a UK university, and submitting their dissertation in the current academic year. The prize is open to any currently registered undergraduate student in a UK Department of Geography, Social Sciences, Planning, Transport Studies, Earth Sciences or Environmental Sciences as long as the work undertaken has a geographical element and focuses on a transport-related issue. Only dissertations awarded a first class mark will be considered and departments can submit no more than two dissertations for this prize. Nominated dissertations should not be submitted for consideration for any other RGS-IBG prize.
Dissertations will be evaluated by three members of the TGRG Committee. The successful prize winner will receive £100.
Nominated dissertations should be sent electronically in PDF format (of less than 25MB in size), along with a letter of recommendation and a copy of the appropriate departmental dissertation regulations, by the student’s Department (Head or nominated representative) and with the student’s knowledge. Please send entries and queries to Angela Curl, Secretary of the TGRG, email@example.com
