What are the Undergrad Awards and who should enter?


The SLA Student Undergraduate Awards are designed to reward final year undergraduate students who have achieved excellence in the broad field of location analysis. The awards are open to final year students registered at UK Universities in the 2015/16 academic year and undertaking dissertations or extended projects involving location analysis.

The society will award three levels of prize: Gold, Silver and Bronze to the top three entries as judged by an expert panel. These should make both academic and practical contributions to the field. The three winners will also be invited to attend an upcoming SLA event to meet members, network and deliver a short (informal) presentation of the winning research.

The winners will also be awarded prizes:

  1. Gold: £150
  2. Silver £100
  3. Bronze: £50

Students in any subject area are invited to apply providing that they meet the above criteria. Example subjects may include (but are not exclusive to) geography, demographics, GIS, business and management.
