On an annual basis, the Coastal and Marine Specialty (COMA) Group of the Association of American Geographers (AAG) invites its student members to submit an abstract to the Norbert P. Psuty Student Paper Merit Award competition or the H. Jesse Walker Student Guided Poster Merit Award competition. Papers may be on any topic pertaining to marine and/or coastal geography (e.g., geomorphology, human interaction, climate, GIS). Both competitions are open to student members of the AAG COMA Specialty Group. The winners of the competitions will receive a certificate, a cash award, and recognition in AAG and COMA newsletter and website.
Application procedures and eligibility requirements for each award are described below.
