Constant H. Jacquet Research Awards

Amount Note:

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.

Proposals from students and new faculty encouraged. Students may join RRA at the time of application. All others must hold RRA membership for one year prior to application date.

The Religious Research Association announces its annual competition for the Constant H. Jacquet Research Award to support research in religion. Research projects must use social scientific methods and perspectives to study aspects of religion, and all proposals must discuss how the research is applicable for religious organizations, leaders, and/or practitioners. We welcome applied, client-centered projects as well as social scientific research on any aspect of religion. Proposals from students, especially PhD 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.

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.
