Why a Grant Program
The Options Institute is committed to its vision of Increasing Investor IQ. There's no better way to do this than by supporting research that catalyzes the understanding and adoption of derivatives products.
The OI Research Grant Program awards grant recipients access to Cboe historical data sets to supercharge their research efforts.
For the 2023 Program cycle, The Options Institute is excited to present two additional, sponsored research grants. Provided by our esteemed partners - S&P Dow Jones Indices and MSCI - these grants will fund research in the areas of Dispersion and Inflation, respectively.
