Arizona Association Offering College Scholarships

April 17, 2009

The Arizona Chapter of the CPCU Society (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters) is sponsoring scholarships to be awarded to graduating high school students and college/university students currently taking insurance courses and/or with an interest in or affiliation with the insurance industry.

To apply for the scholarship, students must be enrolled full-time in an accredited institution, maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4 point scale, and have a primary focus in insurance, business or finance. The goal of the scholarships is to provide financial support to the next generation of insurance industry leaders and to increase awareness of the careers available in the insurance industry. Each recipient is awarded a scholarship of $500 that may be used for tuition, books and other expenses directly charged by the school.

Scholarship Committee Chair Deidre Smith, CPCU, speaking on behalf of committee members Lamont Boyd, Darlene George, and Beth Kozi noted, “Our CPCU scholarship program is in its third year of existence and we are delighted to once again offer several scholarship awards from our chapter. We believe the awards are a tremendous help to our students, the community and the insurance industry.”

A portion of the scholarships are funded by the CPCU-Loman Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization existing to work with the CPCU Society and others in the support and encouragement of research, study, publications, career pursuit, and public and professional education in the fields of insurance, risk and risk bearing.

Details and an application can be found at www.azcpcu.org by clicking on the “Scholarship” tab. The deadline for submitting applications is May 1, 2009.
