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.
The Marshall Blume Prizes in Financial Research are awarded annually to the best Rodney L. White Center working papers. First prize is $10,000, and honorable mentions collectively receive $5,000.
