  1. Have an emphasis on personal financial planning.
  2. May not be accepted for publication in a journal.
  3. May not have won a paper award from another conference.

Papers will be judged on:

  1. Relevancy of topics to the providers of the award.
  2. Potential significance of the results.
  3. Quality of hypothesis.
  4. Quality of writing and presentation.

Early Career Award Guidelines

Early career award(s) are provided to recipients who:

  1. Are within the first 5 years of their career since their PhD was awarded
  2. Have a strong research and publication history, especially within FSR and other Financial Planning research Journals.
