CAS Trust Awards Academic Scholarship

The CAS Trust recently awarded three $1,500 scholarships to students pursuing a career in actuarial science for the 2002-2003 academic year.

Scholarship recipients were Jeffrey Donald Bellmont, University of St. Thomas; Jennifer Marie Randall, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point; and Jennifer Ge Kang, University of Waterloo.

The intent of the CAS Trust Scholarship Program is to further students' interest in the property/casualty actuarial profession and to encourage pursuit of the CAS designation. Scholarships are awarded to U.S. or Canadian college students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement and an interest in mathematics. A committee comprised of academic professionals and External Communications Committee and University Liaison volunteers administered the scholarship in conjunction with the CAS Office.

The Casualty Actuarial Society Trust was established in 1979. It affords CAS members and others an income tax deduction for funds contributed and used for scientific, literary, or educational purposes. For more information, please visit www.casact.org/academ/02schapp.PDF.
