KCR Equity Research Scholarship-Are you interested in equity research and investing? If so, this scholarship may be for you.

Kailash Concepts Research (“KCR”) is a firm dedicated to bringing cutting-edge behavioral finance to the disciplined application of time-tested methods of compounding wealth safely. Our organization eschews the speculative content that dominates many of the prominent newsletters and equity research platforms today. Our material strives to offer investors the most powerful yet simple-to-use tools to better identify stocks that are mispriced.
Kailash’s Research Team was founded in 2010 by a leading professor in the field of behavioral finance and his partner, a veteran portfolio manager, who helped build and manage one of the largest mutual funds in America. KCR’s ranking tools builds on the phenomenal work done by some of the most prominent investors and academics. We place particular emphasis on:
Managerial Integrity
Identifying Business Models with Durable Moats
Balance Sheet Strength & Capital Allocation
Exploiting Myriad Behavioral Errors such as Herding & Self-Attribution Bias
There is no denying the value and importance of Index Funds today. Yet our organization believes that the concept has been taken so far that there have never been so many large opportunities for disciplined equity researchers.
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 speculators but to help aspiring researchers build and expand their network.
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.
