Brattle Group Prizes in Corporate Finance 

The Brattle Group Prizes are awarded annually for outstanding papers on corporate finance. The winning papers are chosen by the Associate Editors of The Journal of Finance. The papers eligible for the prizes for a given year are all those that appeared in the first five issues of that year and in the December issue from the previous year. The prizes are awarded at the AFA's annual meeting by a representative of The Brattle Group, Inc. The amounts of the prizes are $10,000 for first prize and $5,000 each for two distinguished papers. These amounts may change from time to time.

Administration of the Brattle Group Prize is the responsibility of the Editor of The Journal of Finance and is carried out in conjunction with the selection of the Smith Breeden Prizes. Associate Editors vote for the best three corporate finance papers (for the Brattle Group Prizes) and the best three other papers (for the Smith Breeden Prizes). The papers receiving the most votes in their categories receive the prizes; however, a paper may not win in both categories. If a paper should be selected in both the Brattle and Smith Breeden categories, the editor can call for a second round of voting in which papers are allocated by him or her to one category.
