AAG Grants and Awards Program
The AAG has a long history of supporting and recognizing geographers’ accomplishments and contributions through its many prestigious grants and awards. The AAG Grants and Awards Program recognizes and supports AAG members, non-members, students, early career and senior faculty.
On June 15, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., the AAG will host a Twitter Chat, entitled, “AAG Awards Program.” Guest speaker Candida Mannozzi, AAG Deputy Director of Operations, will answer questions about the variety of awards available, the submission process, key deadlines, and more. Follow @theAAG and participate by using the hashtag #AAGChat.
