International Association of Black Actuaries (IABA) is Accepting Scholarship Applications

The International Association of Black Actuaries (IABA) scholarship is seeking undergraduate and post-baccalaureate minority student applicants (particularly students of African descent originating from the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and African nations). 

Scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of individual merit and may be renewed upon reapplication and continued eligibility. IABA typically awards amounts ranging from $2,000 - $5,000/year towards educational expenses including tuition, books, housing, research, etc. and is based on full-time status during the school year. Last year, IABA awarded 27 students close to $90,000.  Since 1992, IABA has awarded over $500,000 in scholarship funds. 

The benefits of becoming a scholarship recipient are not limited to educational expenses. In addition to the scholarship, award recipients also receive the following:

·         Internship and entry-level opportunities;

·         A paid trip to IABA’s Annual Meeting;

·         A one-time stipend for passing actuarial exams during the scholarship period (depending on available funds and academic performance).
