Our scholarship seeks to find individuals interested in the field of equity research and investing. KCR counts some of the most prestigious and accomplished firms, fund managers, and analysts among its clients. Our hope is not just to encourage interest in a field that has largely been forfeited to index funds and stock market speculation but to help aspiring researchers build and expand their network. We will award Gold Medal, Silver Medal and Bronze Medal scholarships as detailed below.


Applicants must write a stock pitch explaining why they believe a stock is too cheap and likely to appreciate or too expensive and likely to fall. We are open-minded individuals and believe a compelling thesis can run 50 dense pages or be accomplished in a brief and succinct 2-3 pages.

We will gladly review any and all submissions! For those who would like to see our Small & Midcap or Large Cap ranking tools as a “jumping off” point please let us know and we will happily supply them for your use.

While not every applicant can win, we will happily publish the research as well as the name of any qualifying applicants work on our website should they want the recognition.
