Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography—Annual International Conference Award for New and Emerging Scholars

The editorial team of Gender, Place and Culture is pleased to announce an annual award valued at a maximum of US$1,500 for new and emerging scholars. The award is targeted at emerging researchers in feminist geographies who are trying to establish research careers and create research momentum. The purpose is to support the research programme of promising feminist geographers and to give an impetus to their careers. The applicant should be involved in independent research and not be merely part of a larger group’s research project. Priority for this award will be given to current graduate students. PhD students, or faculty members within three years of receiving their PhD who are situated in partially or poorly funded positions, who work in departments where little or no money is available for conference participation and who have no recourse to grants from larger funding agencies. This award is intended to be used for attendance at an international conference of your choice, at which you will present a paper on a topic relating to feminist geography. The successful applicant is expected to use the award within one year of its receipt.

Applicants are asked to submit the following:

  • an abstract of the conference paper (250–300 words) and conference information including, if possible, confirmation of acceptance of your paper;

  • a paragraph outlining how your research contributes to feminist geography (not more than 500 words);

  • an academic CV (max. 2 pages);

  • a proposed budget (for accommodation, travel, conference fees, per diem, etc.);

  • and a cover letter including your contact details (mailing address, email, and telephone number) (max. 1 page).

Please send your applications to the Managing Editor, Lena Grip (), by 31 January 2020. A decision on the award will be made within 4–6 weeks of this deadline. Within one month of attending the conference the successful applicant is expected to submit receipts as well as a one page report.
