    The program committee of the Financial Research Association seeks new finance papers of general interest to the profession for the 10th annual meeting of the Association. We are specifically looking for papers that have not been submitted to a journal and have not been presented or scheduled to be presented at the WFA meeting or the AFA meeting. The selection process is very competitive. Papers will be presented by a discussant, after which the authors will have an opportunity to respond. The UBS Global Asset Management Award for Research in Investments, with a prize of $20,000, will be awarded again this year. The winning paper will be selected from the pool of FRA submissions based on the paper’s quality and practical insight into investments. The author(s) of the paper that wins this award must agree to present their work at UBS in 2014. The Financial Research Association will also present a Best Paper Award to the best paper, as selected by the conference attendees, regardless of research area. Authors of the winning paper will share a prize of $5,000. The Association will also present the Michael J. Barclay Award to the young scholar who submits the best solo-authored paper. Young scholars include current Ph.D. students and assistant professors who have held their Ph.D. for fewer than three years. In addition to recognizing the young scholar’s achievement, the Barclay Award reimburses the winner’s conference registration and, in the case of Ph.D. students, also reimburses airfare (up to $400) and hotel expenses. Submissions should be emailed in PDF form to FRA@bc.edu. The email must contain the following information: the names, affiliations, and email addresses of all co-authors, and a list of the conferences at which the paper has been or will be presented. Authors interested in being considered for the Barclay award should mention this in the email and either 1) that they are a Ph.D. student or 2) provide information on the date of their Ph.D.
