As part of our outreach to graduate students and young scholars (PhD less than 3 years) in developing economies, SEAGA will be providing two paper awards* of SGD$500 to help these scholars augment the cost of attending and presenting a paper at the conference. Young scholars and graduate students may apply for a paper award by submitting a full length paper.
The application for this award should be made with:
- A cover letter to express interest in the award.
- A statement in the cover letter to explain how your work will contribute to the field of Geography and Southeast Asia.
- The full length version of your accepted paper.
The application should be made before 15 September 2012. A panel of international scholars will the judge and announce the results by 1 Nov 2012. We will notify the award winners by email.
Please submit all applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
* One of the paper awards is the Ooi Giok Ling paper award, in memory of our late and immediate past president, Professor Ooi Giok Ling.
