MaGrann Research Award

Intended to promote student field research in the Department of Geography.

Through the support of the MaGrann Geography Field Research Fund, intended to promote student research in the Department of Geography, annual awards are given to support field research by undergraduate and graduate students with the potential to make an outstanding contribution to Geography. Through a competitive application process that takes place in the spring each year, student proposals are evaluated based on their novelty, rigor and anticipated contribution to the student's research progress.

Applications are due on March 14 to the chair of the MaGrann Research Committee and consist of a CV/resume, a short description of the proposed research and how it will contribute to the applicant's academic progress, a budget, and a list of other funds for which support has been sought.

Contact Professor Asher Ghertner for more information.

Examples of research descriptions from recipients of a MaGrann Geography Field Research Award

  • My research focuses on wildlife conservation in forests that lie outside Protected Areas. Working in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh (India), I plan to explore the social, ecological and political factors that converge to conserve wildlife in forests that have historically played a role in connecting two distinct biogeographic regions, the Eastern and Western Ghats.
