The Jacobs Levy Center will support faculty research in quantitative finance and fund fellowships for doctoral students pursuing dissertations in quantitative financial research. Research funded by the Center will be disseminated through a White Paper Series.
Research Paper Prizes
Jacobs Levy Center papers are eligible for the Jacobs Levy Center Research Paper Prizes. Prizes include an annual $10,000 best paper award and one or more outstanding paper awards of $5,000 each.
Topics of the winning papers must fall within the scope of the Jacobs Levy Center’s mission, and hence, must have a focus on enhancing the understanding of financial markets through the study and promotion of quantitative techniques and methods as applied to such fields as the analysis of domestic and international stocks and bonds, and the management of investment portfolios.
