Georgia State University and the Southeastern Alternative Funds Association (SEAFA) invite submissions to the 6th Annual Southeastern Hedge Fund Competition. Teams of students will submit hedge fund investment strategy proposals to be evaluated by a panel of investment professionals.

We hope to offer scholarship prizes of $10,000 for the first place team, $5,000 for the second place team, $3,000 for the third place team, and $1,000 each for the fourth and fifth place teams.
