FinGeo Doctoral Dissertation Prize 2023

The Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo) seeks to award its Dissertation Prize to an outstanding dissertation in the field of financial geography. 

While we seek to attract dissertations with a clear spatial component, we wish to encourage applications from a range of disciplinary backgrounds (e.g., anthropology, geography, history, sociology, political science, economics). We welcome contributions from students in institutions from across the world, focusing on financial processes taking place anywhere on the globe. Eligible candidates should have completed[1] their PhD in the period 1 January 2022 – 31 March 2023. 

** Extended ** The application deadline is 1 July 2023. Please send a digital copy to including a recommendation letter by your supervisor(s).


[1] The definition of completion may depend on the country and institution of the applicant, but in general, we consider it to mean the successful defence and approval of the final version of the thesis by the relevant authority. In other words, we cannot accept theses that are successfully defended, but still awaiting corrections or their approval. If potential applicants have any questions in this regard, they should contact
