The Center for Responsible Business at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas School of Business issued a call for papers on Tuesday for the 2011 Moskowitz Prize for Socially Responsible Investing, an award that recognizes outstanding quantitative research in the field of sustainable and socially responsible investing (SRI).
The $5,000 Moskowitz Prize competition is open to authors of studies relevant to responsible investing. To be considered, studies must be submitted by June 30. These may be published or unpublished, Haas said in a statement, but unpublished studies should be of a quality appropriate for publication in a peer-reviewed academic journal.
This year's prize-winning study will be announced at the 22nd Annual SRI in the Rockies Conference of North American investors and investment professionals in New Orleans on Oct. 3.
Sponsors of the 2011 Moskowitz Prize include Rockefeller and Co., Calvert Group, First Affirmative Financial Network, Nelson Capital Management, Neuberger Berman and Trillium Asset Management.
