      The National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education at the
      University of Maryland will grant one award in the amount of $1000 for the
      best masters thesis focused on urban growth and development issues completed
      in the 2005-2006 academic year. The committee seeks a thesis that is
      original, well written, employs appropriate analytic methods, and offers
      lessons relevant to one of the key pillars of the NCSG's scholarship
      including: land use and environment, transportation and public health,
      housing and community development, and international urban development.
      Students from a variety of disciplines are encouraged to apply, including
      but not limited to: urban planning, public policy, civil engineering, public
      and community health, economics and finance, and political science.

      The National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education is a
      non-partisan center for research and leadership training on Smart Growth and
      related land use issues nationally and internationally. Located at the
      University of Maryland in College Park, Md., just eight miles from
      Washington, D.C., the National Center for Smart Growth was founded in 2000
      as a cooperative venture of four University of Maryland schools:
      Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Public Policy, Agriculture and
      Natural Resources, and Engineering. The mission of the Center is to bring
      the diverse resources of the University of Maryland and a network of
      national experts to bear on issues in land development, resource
      preservation and urban growth -- the nature of our communities, our
      landscape and our quality of life -- through interdisciplinary research,
      outreach and education, thereby establishing the University as the national
      leader in this field.

      One copy of the thesis *abstract* must be sent by *Feb. 15, 2006* via email
      to the committee chair with a cover letter stating the intent to submit a
      thesis for the Smart Growth award. On *June 1, 2006*, three copies of
      the *table
      of contents*, the *introductory and concluding chapters*, and a *letter of
      recommendation *from the student's academic advisor should be sent to the
      thesis committee for review. After an initial review, the committee will
      request a copy of the full thesis from the finalists. These materials should
      be sent to:
