Through the generosity of Victor L. Durrington an award has been established for excellence in biblical research for one graduate and one undergraduate student at Freed-Hardeman University.
Who is eligible?
Any student enrolled in Freed-Hardeman University during the Fall and Spring semesters of 2020-21.
What is the Durrington Award for Research Excellence?
It is a monetary award given annually to the writer of the best paper presented for consideration on the specified topic. Additionally, any paper written about a contemporary issue from a biblical perspective is eligible for consideration.
A committee of Freed-Hardeman Bible faculty will make the selection during the spring semester and the winner will be announced on Awards Day.
The winner will receive a significant monetary award and, if the committee's average evaluation score is high enough, a medallion will also be given, to commemorate his or her accomplishment. The committee may also, at its discretion, award second and third-place awards.
