Starting September 2017, Parker University has implemented a research incentive program of cash awards to non-research faculty, staff and students for their involvement in research. The program is designed to encourage participation in research and help shape the research culture of the University.

Faculty, students, and staff of the University (who are not dedicated research personnel) are eligible for participation in the program. Co-authors who are not from Parker are not eligible.

To be considered for an award, participants must submit an application to the RC (see application forms in Appendix A) which will review applications and make determinations on eligibility. Awards will vary with the level of difficulty associated with the work as follows:
