This article reports that the CPCU-Harry J. Loman Foundation has announced it will award up to five $2,500 research grants in 1987, with at least one of these reserved for an insurance practitioner. The foundation is named in honor of the founder of the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter program, Harry J. Loman. The Loman Foundation trustees are looking for innovative research. Topics should deal with any of the pertinent situations affecting the insurance industry, particularly the effect industry practices will have on its future. Such may include the effects of changes in the business cycle or government regulations on the insurance industry as well as market problems in such specific areas as captives, excess and surplus lines, products, and commercial or personal lines. Consideration is not restricted to traditional aspects of insurance, but may include areas of industry performance and consumer-oriented trends. Research, however, is restricted to the property and casualty insurance field and risk management. Those selected by the foundation will receive $1,000 upon receipt of an award and $1,500 upon completion and acceptance of the project. Completion is considered to be delivery to the CPCU-Harry J. Loman Foundation of a scholarly paper.
