Canadian Insolvency Foundation - Ninth Annual Lloyd Houlden Memorial Research Fellowship


Canadian Insolvency Foundation


Ninth Annual Lloyd Houlden Memorial Research Fellowship


To a Maximum of $20,000 will be awarded for a paper that addresses current issues in Canadian insolvency policy and practice.  Papers should be 7,000 to 10,000 words in length and should be written for an audience consisting of those involved in insolvency practice, insolvency law or in the development and analysis of insolvency policy. In some years, the Foundation has divided the Fellowship between two worthy proposals.

The Foundation looks forward to receiving again this year a number of interesting research proposals.


Research proposals are invited from anyone, both researchers and practitioners, working in the field of insolvency and restructuring. All research proposals will be reviewed and evaluated.
