As part of our outreach to graduate students and young scholars (PhD less than 5 years) in developing economies, SEAGA will be providing 5 paper awards* of USD$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 October 2019. A panel of international scholars will judge and announce the results by 1 Dec 2019 (as paper submission has been extended, this process will also be extended. We will still accept proposals till 15 December; Results will be announced later). We will notify the award winners by email.
* One of the paper awards is the Ooi Giok Ling paper award, in memory of our late and past president, Professor Ooi Giok Ling.
