Constant H. Jacquet Research Awards
The Religious Research Association announces its annual competition for the Constant H. Jacquet Research Award to support research in religion.
Applied, client-centered projects are given priority, but basic social scientific research on any aspect of religion is also regularly funded. Proposals from students, especially Ph.D. candidates, and scholars who are in the early stages of their careers are particularly encouraged. Applicants are required to be members of the RRA. Full-time students may join the Association at the time of their application. All others must hold membership in the RRA for at least one full year prior to the application deadline.
Funding may be used for research expenses, but not for supplemental income or capital equipment. Grants in excess of $4,000 to a single recipient/agency are rare.
Applications are due on April 30th of each year. Applicants will be notified of the disposition of their applications by June 15th and will be asked to submit a written acceptance of their awards within two weeks of notification. Awards become available July 1st.
Recipients should plan to expend the grant within one year after accepting the award and should note RRA support in all reports of the research for which they received the grant. Award recipients are required to provide the Executive Officer with an abstract and a one-page summary of the research at its conclusion.
Award recipients are encouraged to submit their research reports for possible publication in the Review of Religious Research, subject to editorial review.
