Graf Early Career Award to recognize out-standing contributions to the field of geomorphology and to the geographic community through research, teaching and/or public outreach by an early-career scholar. Eligibility is limited to GSG members at the rank of Assistant Professor or comparable professional career stage. The award will be announced annually at the American Association of Geographers Meeting at both the GSG business meeting and at the AAG Honors Luncheon beginning in 2022.

The letter should highlight the contributions to research, teaching and/or outreach, detail why the contributions are outstanding, and highlight the potential of the nominee to emerge as a national or international leader within the field of geomorphology.
