Foundation for Managed Derivatives Research (FMDR) provides grants for economics, business and financial research that examine, on a scholarly basis, the use of derivative instruments - including futures contracts, options on futures contracts, forward contracts, and swaps - as an investment vehicle.

FMDR is a foundation established by Managed Funds Association (MFA) in 1994 to support scholarly research on the use of derivative instruments. MFA is the primary association representing professionals in the hedge fund industry.[1]

Grants up to $25,000 are available to universities, colleges, academic foundations, academic institutions, individuals, and research entities.[2]
