CAS University Award Program

Established in 2016, the CAS University Award Program celebrates and promotes universities for the innovative and exemplary ways they prepare students for a career in the property and casualty insurance industry. Each year up to three schools are honored through this program. The winners each receive substantial recognition, such as on the CAS website and in a press release, as well as a monetary award of $5,000 to further enhance their programs.

The 2021 application deadline is March 29, 2021 and winners will be announced by June 1, 2021.

We are seeking applications from schools that are innovative in exposing students to property and casualty topics in any of the following areas:

  • Curriculum: Innovative classes or coursework offered that facilitate the understanding of property and casualty insurance topics.
  • Research: Production of research in the field of property and casualty insurance; innovative opportunities to pursue property and casualty research.
  • Engagement: Unique ways of fostering connections to the property and casualty industry through events or partnerships with property and casualty employers and organizations.

These are just a few examples of ways that schools can demonstrate their commitment to enhancing education and research in the property and casualty insurance industry. Applicants are welcome to provide examples outside of those outlined. Our 2020 CAS University Award Program winners included  McMaster University, Middle Tennessee State University, Temple University, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
