The International Association of Black Actuaries (IABA) has recently launched its Scholarship and Boot Camp applications!
The application deadline for both programs is March 31, 2018.
The IABA Scholarship Program provides scholarships at the undergraduate and graduate level for black students who are interested in pursuing actuarial careers.
In 2017, IABA awarded $93,000 to 28 students. The scholarship award (ranging from $3,000 – 5,000) also includes a trip to IABA’s Annual Meeting and a stipend for passing exams during the award period. Many scholarships also come with an internship or entry-level offer from some of the industry’s leading employers.

IABA Boot Camp
The IABA Actuarial Boot Camp is the premier program for transitioning black actuarial students to the actuarial industry. The majority of our past attendees report that the Boot Camp was instrumental in confirming their interest in the career and helping them through the interview process. In many cases, they were introduced to their employer through their Boot Camp participation. Visit the website for more information (https://blackactuaries.site-ym.com/page/2018IABABootCamp)
