RGK-ARNOVA President's Award Recipients
Share |

The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service at the University of Texas at Austin and ARNOVA offer this annual award to encourage innovative, foundational research in the field of nonprofit and philanthropic studies. This is not a typical research grant. The RGK Center-ARNOVA President's Award provides a $10,000 prize to a member of ARNOVA to support basic research and theory building in the field of philanthropic, nonprofit and voluntary action studies. We are looking for new, creative work, and especially encourage projects that incorporate and apply insights, frameworks and theories from the social sciences to the study of nonprofit organizations, philanthropy and volunteerism. One grant is made each year, assuming a worthy proposal is submitted. 

The Award recipient will be expected to produce a working paper that can be made available on the RGK Center website (www.rgkcenter.org) when finished, and a presentation of that paper can be made at the ARNOVA Conference the year it is completed. The recipient will be expected to produce the final paper within 12 months of the announcement of the Award.


Award recipient is required to attend the ARNOVA Awards Luncheon on Friday, November 18, 2016 at the Hyatt Capitol Hill in Washington DC.  They will also serve on a panel to present their award winning research as part of a mini-plenary on the same day.
