Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation Awards
This award recognizes outstanding theses and dissertations in transportation geography. There are two awards, one for best Master’s thesis and one for best Ph.D. dissertation. We encourage submissions by students who do not necessarily consider themselves transportation geographers but are working on exciting and innovative transportation topics. Student applicants must be members of the AAG to be eligible for either award, although they are not obligated to attend the AAG annual meeting.
Edward L. Ullman Award
The TGSG’s most prestigious award recognizes a transport geographer’s lifelong commitment and contributions to the field. It commemorates the career of Edward L. Ullman (1912-1976), well known for his contributions to spatial interaction, railroad networks, freight flows, and other topics. The awardee is recognized during the AAG annual meeting and is invited to give the Fleming Lecture in Transportation Geography at the following year’s conference.
Student Travel Awards
These awards are given to two Master or Ph.D. students who will present their paper at the AAG annual meeting. Applicants must be a member of the TGSG and the presented paper should cover a transportation topic that is relevant to the TGSG community.
