The AQR Insight Award recognizes and rewards exceptional academic working papers that offer original, intelligent approaches to practical issues in the investment world. AQR's Insight Award Advisory Committee will consider papers on any investment-related topic as long as they deliver clear, significant insights. Up to three papers share a $100,000 annual prize.
The AQR Insight Award counts many esteemed academics among its recipients. The award was founded in 2012 and in that time, 28 of the 35 finalist papers (through 2018) have gone on to be published in the leading academic journals in finance and economics such as the Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Political Economy, Quarterly Journal of Economics and American Economic Review.
The 2020 Insight Award Call for Papers will begin in August 2019.
