  • No application requirements for this scholarship
Additional Information: Please submit an essay describing the experience you have had developing and trading algorithms for systematic trading of stocks, bonds, options, and/or futures. If you have published work on the topic of algorithmic trading please describe that body of work in your essay. Most importantly, please describe the “edge” that your most successful algorithmic strategy exploits, and why that edge should be persistent. Given the thousands of traders that execute algorithmic programs, some traders will be phenomenally successful for periods of time by mere chance alone, but a strategy with a clear “edge” may have staying power. Because we have received a large number of responses for prior Scholarship awards, we ask that you please limit your response to 2000 words, however, if you are selected, we may request that you provide additional detail to verify the work you have done related to algorithmic trading. This essay must be submitted prior to the application deadline.

Award Amount: $10,000  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $10,000.
