Call for research proposals

Ongoing Call for Credit Rating Research Proposals
 

On an ongoing basis, we invite researchers from Singapore and around the world to apply for the CRI research grant. This grant aims to provide the infrastructure for researchers to study, refine, develop, and test novel methodologies in the vital area of credit ratings. It also aims to bring the academic community together, disseminating knowledge and spurring collaborations.

The recipients of this grant will get access to the CRI database, which contains a wide range of information (e.g. security prices, financial statements, etc) for all firms listed in the major stock exchanges world-wide. The recipients may also get financial support for transportation, accommodation, and daily per diem. The recipients of this grant will retain the right to use and publish the methods they develop in the CRI. Upon mutual agreement, the CRI may also use the methods in its operations or recommend paper publishing in its Global Credit Review.

To apply for the grant, please send the following materials to Dr. Sun Wei rmisw@nus.edu.sg with any enquires:

i. A completed form - Application for credit rating research grant from CRI.

ii. CVs of the proposed team members.

iii. A brief write-up (1-2 pages) on your proposed project or study.

iv. A budget proposal.

Applications are welcome at any time. For researchers who may want to request a longer visit (two weeks or more), please lodge your applications two months before the proposed start date. for a research team. The daily output from our existing model can be viewed through this website. Models will continually evolve and improve, and the intention of these grants is to open up the development to a broadly based research community.
