The Marshall Blume Prizes in Financial Research are awarded annually to the best Wharton (unpublished) working papers in financial economics written during the prior calendar year. First prize paper is $10,000, and honorable mention papers each receive $5,000.

The Marshall Blume Prizes in Financial Research were established in 2011 to honor the late Marshall Blume (Center Director from 1986 – 2010) upon his retirement from the Wharton Finance Department after over 40 years of service. The Prizes are funded exclusively by the generosity of Mr. Bruce Terker, W’76, WG’78, a former student of Marshall Blume and longtime benefactor of the Center.
