Research Grants

Research Grants support faculty members’ scholarly research and creative activity.

The Faculty Development Committee awards Research Grants on a competitive basis with the approval of the university president.

Applicants must be full-time faculty. First-time applicants will receive priority consideration. Previous grant recipients are welcome to apply and will receive equal consideration two years after their last Research Grant.

Research Grants are awarded only to faculty members who will agree to return to teaching at Ouachita Baptist University the following year. The financial support which the university provides shall be in the form of a loan repayable within one year following the grant. The interest rate shall be the lesser of seven percent per annum or the maximum allowable by Arkansas law, and a legally binding note shall be properly executed. The loan shall be forgiven in its entirety following one year of satisfactory post-grant service.

Recipients retain publication rights to findings and results of research projects.
