will be available in January, 2014
The Actuarial Diversity Scholarship promotes diversity within the profession through an annual scholarship program for Black/African American, Hispanic, Native North American and Pacific Islander students. The scholarship award recognizes and encourages the academic achievements of full-time undergraduate students pursuing a degree that may lead to a career in the actuarial profession.
The Actuarial Foundation awards the scholarship in the following levels:
- $1,000 – high school senior applying for freshman year;
- $2,000 – college freshman applying for sophomore year/sophomore applying for junior year; and
- $3,000 – college junior applying for senior year
The award will be divided to cover multiple semesters or other terms comprising the academic year. Recipients attending school for a portion of the upcoming year (e.g., one semester) will receive the corresponding portion of a full year scholarship amount. Passing of actuarial exams will be an important factor in evaluating scholarship applications for junior year and beyond. Exams passed will also be a consideration for prior award recipients applying to renew the scholarship.
Each eligible scholarship applicant, whether or not a scholarship is awarded, may request an actuarial mentor as a personal resource to answer questions about the actuarial field, actuarial exams and to offer assistance in pursuit of a career in the actuarial profession
