The Society is delighted to announce a new grant for post-doctoral development research.
The Rob Potter Award is the latest addition to the Society’s grants programme. This new award of £1,500 will be offered for the first time in 2018 as a supplement to one of the projects supported under the Society’s Small Research Grants scheme, or as an independent award.
The Rob Potter Award is given in celebration of Rob Potter (1950-2014), Emeritus Professor of Human Geography at the University of Reading and founding editor of the journal Progress in Development Studies. In tribute to Rob, the award is open to early career researchers whose work focuses on socio-economic development issues such as urbanisation, housing and participatory planning, or transnational migration and identities - particularly in relation to the contemporary Caribbean.
The deadline for applications is 18 January.
