One intent of this scholarship program is to encourage students to consider and explore career opportunities in the Risk Management function. Although an academic discipline in Risk Management is preferred, we recognize that many Universities do not offer this as a major. Therefore, other majors, such as Finance, will be considered if the student can demonstrate orientation toward a Risk Management career.
In 2015, six scholarships were awarded valued at between $1,000 - $4,000, totaling $15,000 based almost entirely on information from the student application and essay. The number and value of awarded scholarships for 2016 will depend on a number of factors, including number and quality of applications received, applicant need, and our organization's funding capability.
Application deadline is June 1, 2016. Applications are to be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
