Joynal Abedin, a Ph.D. student from GEAR Lab, received the Graduate Student Affinity Group (GSAG) Research and Support Awards. This year, GSAG received nearly 100 applications, and Joynal is one of seven recipients (Website Link: https://gsagaag.org/gsag-award/). Congratulations!
What is GSAG?
GSAG is a professional organization committed to representing graduate students within the American Association of Geographers, and to supporting their advancement in the field of Geography. In response to the challenges brought about by COVID-19, and the 2023 AAG Annual Meeting adopting a hybrid approach, GSAG has expanded the annual “GSAG Travel Award.” We are excited to provide an alternative award cycle with a broader scope named the “GSAG Research and Support Award. Awards will be made in the amount of $250 USD, and applications will be received by the GSAG Awards Committee. This award is intended to support graduate students in their research, and your graduate student experience (whether field, university or home-based). Submission of a budget is not required.
We encourage all graduate students, Masters and Ph.D., to apply. Preference will be given to those who have not previously received a GSAG award (inclusive of GSAG AAG travel funds), and those who are underrepresented in the field of geography. Applicants do not need to attend the 2023 annual AAG conference in order to apply but must be current members of GSAG.
Applications will be completed using Google Forms. If an alternative application submission method is needed, please contact GSAG at email@example.com. Award checks will be mailed to awardees, and we anticipate notifying recipients by early February 2023.
