Bowman Scholar Award-1

American Geographical Society – Bowman Scholar Award

The Bowman Scholar accolade honors academic geographers who conduct exceptional fieldwork in foreign regions. Recipients are chosen among those who lead or have led Bowman Expeditions administered by the American Geographical Society to improve understandings of peoples and places worldwide. Conducting regional geography, enhanced by geographic information systems (GIS), these scholars work directly with individuals and institutions of host countries and publish results in scholarly journals and popular media in accordance with the Society’s Guidelines for Ethical Conduct of Foreign Field Research. The program and accolade are named for Isaiah Bowman, who served as AGS Director from 1915 to 1935, advised Presidents Wilson and Roosevelt during World Wars I and II, and helped found the United Nations. .
