Undergraduate Student Poster Award

The GSG Awards Committee invites undergraduate students presenting a poster at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers to participate in the specialty group’s Undergraduate Poster Award competition. Undergraduate students from all branches of geomorphology are encouraged to submit an application for consideration. An award of $150 will be made to the student judged to have produced the best geomorphology-related poster.

To be eligible for the award, students must be members of the AAG and the Geomorphology Specialty Group. Students must be registered to give a first-authored poster presentation in the GSG-sponsored “General Geomorphology” session. The subject matter may deal with any aspect of geomorphology. Posters will be evaluated on the basis of: 1) the research contribution to the field of geomorphology; and 2) the scientific and aesthetic effectiveness of the poster itself. Competitors will be acknowledged at the GSG business meeting, and award winners will be announced after the annual meeting and publicized in the AAG Newsletter.

Your application package must include a single PDF file with applicant’s name included in the file name (ex., “JDoe_UndergradPosterAward”):

  • A cover letter indicating your undergraduate institution, degree status, and name(s) of your academic advisor(s). 
  • A copy of the poster abstract submitted to the AAG Annual Meeting

To be considered for the 2022 award, the Awards Committee must receive these materials by February 10, 2023.

Please submit materials electronically to the Awards Committee Chair: Katherine Lininger (katherine.lininger@colorado.edu).
