The Center for Responsible Business at UC Berkeley'’s Haas School of Business is seeking entries for the 18th annual Moskowitz Prize -- the only global award recognizing outstanding academic research in the field of sustainable, responsible, impact investing (SRI).

This year’s prize-winning study will be announced at the 24th annual SRI Conference on October 29.

To be considered for the Moskowitz Prize, studies must be submitted by July 1, 2013. The $5,000 prize competition is open to authors of studies relevant to responsible investing.  Studies may be published or unpublished, but unpublished studies should be of a quality appropriate for publication in a peer-reviewed academic journal. Details about the submission process can be found at:

Entries are reviewed by an independent jury of scholars and investment professionals. The prize winner is determined based on practical significance to responsible investment practitioners, appropriateness and rigor of quantitative methods, and novelty of results.

The Moskowitz Prize encourages and recognizes outstanding academic research on matters germane to the field of responsible investing. The Prize is named for Milton Moskowitz, one of the first investigators to publish comparisons of the financial performance of screened and unscreened portfolios.

Both the Haas School and The SRI Conference acknowlege and appreciate the 2012 Moskowitz Prize sponsors: Calvert Investments, First Affirmative Financial Network, Nelson Capital Management, Rockefeller and Co., Neuberger Berman, and Trillium Asset Management.
