This year, the Heloise Ham Scholarship Fund was marked by an exceptional and highly competitive pool of candidates. In addition to their dedicated participation in the CFA Research Challenge, each inspiring recipient of the scholarship funding award—bestowed via the Graham Center—produced and submitted a variety of compelling essays focused on the lessons they learned throughout the competition, as well as their respective goals for their prospective careers in finance. CFA Society New York congratulates the 2022 winners and thanks all of those who participated.
