Last Call for 2012 CAS Trust Scholarship Applications!
The Casualty Actuarial Society is once again 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 $2,000 scholarships to deserving students for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Applicants must be a permanent resident of the U.S. or Canada, or have a permanent resident visa, and must be admitted as a full-time student to a U.S. or Canadian educational institution to be eligible. Applicants should demonstrate high scholastic achievement and a strong interest in mathematics or a mathematics-related field. Applicants must also have taken at least one exam prior to March 1, 2012.
Recommendations, transcripts, actuarial exam results, work experience, and written essays will all be considered in selecting the award recipients. Additional details and applications are available online. Applications are due by March 1, 2012, and winners will be notified in late May.
The intent of the scholarships is to further students’ interest in the property/casualty actuarial profession and to encourage pursuit of the CAS designation. Established in 1979, the Casualty Actuarial Society Trust affords CAS members and others an income tax deduction for funds contributed and used for scientific, literary, or educational purposes.
