ARECA is pleased to announce the 2019 new scholarship competition for current undergraduate students in the Asia Pacific region who are interested in pursuing the actuarial profession.
About the Scholarship:
The primary element of the scholarship competition is for the applicant to prepare an essay (approximately five pages) addressing a business scenario that is illustrative of the issues that are analyzed by property / casualty actuaries in their daily work.
Scholarship awards of US $667 each (cash) will be awarded to three students. In addition, ARECA and CAS plan to publish the winning scenario essays, and to invite the three winning students to participate in an upcoming local ARECA meeting (or other actuarial event) during 2019.
The funding for these scholarships is sponsored by AXIS, part of the AXIS Capital group of companies, which includes global insurers and reinsurers providing clients and distribution partners with a broad range of specialized risk transfer products and services.
ARECA (“Asia Region Casualty Actuaries”) was formed in 2015 as a regional affiliate of the Casualty Actuarial Society. ARECA provides continuing education programs, information and other support to actuarial programs at universities across Asia, networking opportunities for current and future actuaries, and now the ARECA scholarship.

Applications are due by 31 March, 2019.
