ARECA is pleased to announce the 2020/21 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 $1000 each (cash) will be awarded to three students. In addition, the Scholarship winners will have the opportunity to publish their scenario essays in CAS publications, and to participate in an upcoming local ARECA meeting (or other actuarial event) during 2021.
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.
Asia Region Casualty Actuaries (ARECA), based in Asia Pacific, is a Regional Affiliate of the Casualty Actuarial Society (“CAS”).
