Advancing Diversity and Inclusion Award

  • Description: The objective of this award is to advance diversity and promote inclusion and interest in the field of Energy Geography. In recognizing and acknowledging inequities manifest in contemporary social circumstances, particularly academic settings, the Energy and Environment Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers welcomes and encourages submissions from those who identify as members of diverse populations. We recognize that the concept of diversity is broad, complex, and dynamic; we are particularly interested in submissions from traditionally underrepresented populations.

  • Award: $400, which is intended to cover AAG Conference Registration and AAG Membership

  • Criteria: Individuals are eligible, regardless of their current status as AAG members. We strongly encourage students, postdocs, and early career faculty for application or nomination.
