Welcome to Arkansas State University!

The Arkansas State University Faculty Award for Emerging Scholarship is presented each spring to an emerging pre-tenure-track faculty member who has evidenced significant and meritorious achievement in scholarship.


  • The publication (or conditional acceptance) of one or more particularly high quality, original and scholarly contributions by a nationally recognized and refereed professional/academic journal, juried exhibition, or other professional outlets.
  • Additional evidence of scholarly merit, including refereed scholarly activities of lesser stature such as presentations in regional journals or exhibits, or refereed papers read to professional organizations.
  • The potential significance of these contributions in enhancing the effectiveness of the subject content in the classroom.
  • For the purpose of this award, papers read at meetings which do not referee papers, in-house documents, brief book reviews, and local exhibits and performance do not provide evidence of significant scholarly achievement.
  • The receipt of grants is not a requirement for the consideration of this award. However, applicants are encouraged to list all submitted grant proposals even though they were not funded.
