The Actuarial Diversity Scholarship promotes diversity within the profession through an annual scholarship program for Black/African American, Hispanic,Â Native North American and Pacific Islander students. The scholarship award recognizes and encourages the academic achievements of full-time undergraduateÂ 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 â€“ high school senior applying for freshman year;
- $2,000 â€“ college freshman applying for sophomore year/sophomore applying for junior year; and
- $3,000Â â€“ college junior applying for senior year
The award will be divided to cover multiple semesters orÂ other terms comprising the academic year. Recipients attending school for aÂ portion of the upcoming year (e.g., one semester) will receive theÂ corresponding portion of a full year scholarship amount.Â Passing of actuarial exams will be an important factor inÂ evaluating scholarship applications for junior year and beyond. Exams passedÂ will also be a consideration for prior award recipients applying to renew theÂ scholarship.
Each eligible scholarship applicant, whether or not aÂ scholarship is awarded, may request an actuarial mentor as a personal resourceÂ to answer questions about the actuarial field, actuarial exams and to offerÂ assistance in pursuit of a career in the actuarial profession
