About The FSI-PRI Scholarship
The FSI-PRI Scholarship for Best Research on Responsible Investment targets graduate-level university research papers (masters or doctorate) or academic articles. The selection is conducted by a jury of finance professionals and university research experts. The jury uses four categories of selection criteria:
- research quality,
- pertinence of the subject matter to finance practitioners,
- relevance of issues addressed, and
- impact, especially in terms of possible solutions to an ESG (environmental, social, and governance) challenge.
Awards and recognition
The recipient of the FSI-PRI Scholarship for Best Research on Responsible Investment receives a scholarship worth several thousands of dollars ($5,000 in 2015 and 2016, but $6,000 in 2017). In addition, Finance Montréal will help promote the visibility and recognition of the winning research paper or academic article by holding an award ceremony.
The FSI-PRI Scholarship for Best Research on Responsible Investment is governed by a steering committee composed of members of Finance Montréal’s FSI and the PRI Quebec Network.
