The Institute for Human Geography has awarded four grants during the October 2015 round of our Small Grants Program. We are happy to announce the finalists:

The Human Geography Small Grants Program distributes surplus funds from the journal; the context for this funding model is detailed in an editorial from our first issue. These grants support activism, research, and writing in radical geography (providing up to $5,000 per grant). Applications are welcomed during our semi-annual deadlines in April and October. For more information, please consult our website and feel free to discuss ideas with members of our editorial committee.
