Within these unprecedented times, we feel that it is important to remember to celebrate the research and work that has been carried out in regional studies and its related fields, including urban and rural studies, city-regions and interstitial spaces. Thus we have decided to extend the deadline for nominations until 21st May 2020. Please note that in 2020, the Awards will be given virtually.
Nominations (both self-nominations and third-party nominations) of current members are being sought for the following awards in regional studies and related fields:
- Nathaniel Lichfield Award – this award is for recent Masters graduate who have graduated within the previous year;
- RSA PhD Student Award – this award is for registered PhD students who have not yet received their PhD certificate;
- RSA Routledge Early Career Award – this award is for early career researchers (defined as being within five years of the date on their PhD certificate or equivalent.))
The nominees are expected to have made an original and outstanding contribution to the field of regional studies. To be eligible for nomination, the recipient should be clearly identified as having made a leading personal contribution. Nominations should include a fully referenced piece of work in English, which fits the research interests of the Association.
The prize for each Award is:
- A cheque for £500;
- A certificate.
