Every year Urban Geography awards up to $2,000 to support a seminar series, workshop, or similar event which brings together leading scholars to focus on a cutting-edge theme within Urban Geography. The expectation is that this award will be supported by the host department and institution either in-kind (e.g., staff time, event planning, space, scheduling, and other forms of administrative support) and/or in terms of more direct financial support. It is also hoped that the award will be used to leverage additional co-sponsors.
Proposals are welcome from scholars and programs without regard to discipline, but a primary focus on Urban Geography is necessary. Funding decisions will be based upon the cohesiveness of the proposal, the support of the host department and institution, as well as funding partners, the academic reputation of the organizers, and the potential visibility of the program including its overall academic impact.
