Paper Award

As part of our outreach to graduate students and young scholars (PhD less than 3 years) in developing economies, SEAGA will be providing a few paper awards* of USD$300 to help these scholars augment the cost of attending and presenting a paper at the conference.


The application for this award should be made with:

  1. A cover letter to express interest in the award.
  2. A statement in the cover letter to explain how your work will contribute to the field of Geography and Southeast Asia.
  3. The full length version of your accepted paper.


The application should be made before 15 October 2010. A panel of international scholars will the judge and announce the results by 1 Nov 2010. We will notify the award winners by email.


Please submit all applications to


* One of the paper awards is the Ooi Giok Ling paper award, in memory of our late and immediate past president, Professor Ooi Giok Ling.
