FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams said, “The goal of this challenge is simple—to engage undergraduate students in our work and give them an opportunity to wrestle with some of the very same challenges that banking regulators deal with every day.”


The FDIC’s Center for Financial Research is hosting the 2021-2022 Academic Challenge, which will consist of two rounds. In the first round of the competition, teams of undergraduate students will use multiple public data sources to examine the effects of community banks on local economic development. In the second round, finalist teams will present their findings and answer questions from a panel of judges who work in the areas of banking and bank supervision.
