Actuarial Science Scholarships

Applicant must be an Actuarial Science Major, who is a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident. Scholarships are based primarily on potential to succeed in Actuarial Science and secondarily on financial need. The number of scholarships awarded and the amount of each scholarship are dependent upon the amount of contributions available for distribution. The allocation of these funds is determined by a subcommittee of the Nebraska Actuaries Club’s Advisory Board for Nebraska’s Actuarial Science Program, in conjunction with the Actuarial Science Program faculty. Recipients may re-apply for the grant for one additional year. Applications are available in Business Advising and Student Engagement, CoB 125 or on their website. Deadline to apply is February 15.
