Sally Clark Award


The Sally Clark Award offered through The Society of Woman Geographers, honors the explorer and sculptor Sally Clark, a prominent member of the SWG, who traveled widely throughout Africa and the Americas in the 1920s and 1930s. This award was created to further Ms. Clark's interest in women's education and to enhance the SWG's fellowship program by supporting the "quest for new knowledge and the imagination and initiative to seek it." Up to $500 may be awarded.

To apply you must (1) be a female student actively enrolled in the M.A. program in Geography at Hunter College and actively engaged in thesis research; and (2) upon completion of your thesis, prepare a brief report to the SWG and the department describing how the grant money was spent and how it enhanced your research.
