CFS is pleased to share a new funding opportunity in partnership with the Retirement Income Institute (RII), part of the Alliance for Lifetime Income (ALI). CFS will fund two opportunities related to annuities and income security, both starting in October 2021. Interested scholars may apply to both, though note that each has it’s own separate application link. Applications are due 9/17/21. Junior scholars and emerging researchers are strongly encouraged to apply. Projects examining pensions, fixed income, annuities and income security are all of interest.
