University Students: Apply for the 2008 CAS Trust Scholarship

In Canada or the U.S.

By Caitlin S. Jennings, CAS Communications Coordinator

Are you in need of some extra money to help you through school? The CAS is accepting applications for its scholarship program for college students pursuing a career in actuarial science. The CAS Trust Scholarship program, funded by donations to the CAS Trust, will award up to three $1,500 scholarships to deserving students for the 2008-2009 academic year.

The applicant must be a permanent resident of the U.S. or Canada, or have a permanent resident visa, and admitted as a full-time student to a U.S. or Canadian educational institution to be eligible. The applicant also must have demonstrated high scholastic achievement and a strong interest in mathematics or a mathematics-related field.

Recommendations, transcripts, actuarial exam results, work experience, and written essays will all be considered in selecting the award recipients. Preference will be given to applicants who have passed at least one actuarial exam. Additional details and applications are available on the CAS Web Site. Applications are due by May 1, 2008. Winners will be notified in July.

The intent of the scholarships is to further students’ interest in the property and casualty actuarial profession and to encourage pursuit of the CAS designations. The CAS Trust, established in 1979, affords CAS members and others an income tax deduction for funds contributed and used for scientific, literary, or educational purposes.
