Awards & Grants


The CGSG Awards and Grants Program is one of the group's most important
functions. Each year, dues from CGSG members support paper awards and
research grants for students enrolled in accredited geography programs and
closely related graduate fields. Applicants must be members of the AAG and
the CGSG by the time an award is made.

Both competitions will close on January 3, 2014 and award announcements
will be made at the 2014 AAG Annual Meeting in Tampa.
