Geography and Regional Science

The Geography and Regional Science Program (GRS) supports basic research on a variety of problems associated with human, physical, and biotic systems on the Earth's surface. The spatiality of these systems and their interaction at human scales circumscribe the core of Geography. Investigations into the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity within particular "places and spaces" and the extension to regional and global spheres are especially encouraged. Projects on a variety of topics (both domestic and international) qualify for support if they are argued to contribute to scholarship by enhancing geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
