Every year since 2007, GARP has issued a
Call for Research Proposals from which 16 research projects
have been awarded funding as a part of the GARP Risk Management
Research Program. Research projects are selected for funding by a
Research Committee of risk management practitioners, academics and
researchers co-chaired by Professor René Stulz of The Ohio State
The Research Committee seeks to provide
projects offering unique approaches and
insights into problems of significance to risk management
projects of particular relevance to current
global financial risk management issues and needs; and
projects with significant potential for
bridging the gap between theory and practice.
Each year, the Research Grant Program funds
approximately 5 research proposals in the amount of $15,000 each.
Grants are given under the condition that the paper contains new
and original work. Each year the Research Committee identifies
particular topics of interest, although other topics are also
considered. GARP helps authors connect with practitioners to obtain
relevant information or data, if such help is needed. Upon
completion, the authors present their paper at a GARP event. Travel
and lodging expenses associated with presenting results at a GARP
event are reimbursed. Authors retain the property rights over the
Application Procedure and Deadlines
The details of submitting research proposals
is outlined each year in the Call for Research Proposals.
Typically, the proposal requirements include the following:
A cover page with the proposal title
followed on separate lines by the author name, mailing address,
phone number and e-mail address. If the proposal has multiple
authors, repeat the name and address block on separate lines for
each additional author.
A short abstract of no more than one page. A
brief statement of research objectives and a literature review
placing the study in context.
A description of the research method and the
expected form of the results.
The researchers should also include in a
planned schedule for completion.
A copy of each researcher's c.v.
Entries for the 2014 GARP Research Grant
