The award program is for actuarial science majors who are successful on the examinations
given by the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society.
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.

These scholarships will be awarded to incoming freshman students who demonstrate
a strong interest in the actuarial profession. Detailed information and application
forms are available at www.n-a-c.org.
Many students obtain actuarial employment on a part-time basis during the school
year with local insurance companies, or full-time during the summer with actuarial
employers from around the United States. These positions not only provide needed
income for the student, but they also provide valuable on-the-job experience.
