Dissertation Awards

Piles of Books

The EnGRG offers a combined prize of up to £150 of books for the top three undergraduate dissertations each year. Winning dissertations are hosted on the EnGRG website.

We welcome contributions from both BA and BSc programmes, as well as from social science disciplines other than geography. Submissions must engage with the significance of space/place for understanding energy issues, and/or explore the significance of energy or energy systems for understanding the formation of space/place.

Entries are assessed on the following criteria: the quality of written presentation (structure, strength of argument, academic rigour); methodological innovativeness; quality of empirical data and/or findings; and theoretical/conceptual originality.

Details of the 2022 undergraduate dissertation prize will be announced in the summer.
