Announcing the Launch of the 2022 CAS Student Central Summer Program

The CAS Student Central Summer Program is officially accepting applications for 2022! This free eight-week online program, designed by practicing actuaries, will support university students’ career growth by providing technical and soft skill development, as well as mentorships and networking opportunities.

The program, originally established to fill the void created by cancelled internships in 2020, has quickly become one of our most popular interactive professional and educational experiences for members of CAS Student Central. Now in its third iteration, hear what former participants have to say about the program:

“I learned about real techniques that actuaries use for pricing and reserving that I wouldn’t have otherwise learned. The mentor and student cohort meetings allowed us to exchange ideas about the material from the week and learn more about the actuarial field from our mentors.”

The webinar speakers were incredible!  I am so appreciative of having the opportunity to directly ask questions to some of the most prominent actuaries in the field.”

2022 Program Details

The program will run from Monday, June 13 – Friday, August 5. Over the course of the eight-week program participants will:

  • Complete weekly modules that focus on a variety of property and casualty actuarial topics including pricing, reserving, and data visualization.
  • Connect and network with mentors for weekly discussions as students advance through the program.
  • Build important soft skills, such as presentation skills, resume/interview prep, professional courtesies and more!
  • Work on teams with other students on a case competition addressing a real-life actuarial problem, and present their final projects to a panel of practicing actuaries. There will be cash prizes for the winning teams.

Participants will spend approximately 10 hours a week participating in the program and are expected to attend the program in its eight-week entirety. Presentations and materials will be in English. Participants who successfully complete the program will be awarded a certificate by the CAS documenting their accomplishment.

Who Should Apply?

The program is geared towards university students who are interested in gaining actuarial experience and knowledge of the property and casualty insurance industry. It is an exciting development opportunity for students who do not have an internship lined up for summer 2022. We welcome applications from across the globe.

We encourage students at schools without actuarial programs, as well as those who recently learned about the actuarial career, to apply. This program will also be beneficial to students who attend an actuarial program but have had limited exposure to property and casualty topics or limited access to actuarial internships.

The CAS Student Central Summer Program is also open to career changers who have demonstrated a commitment to pursuing the actuarial career path.

The CAS strongly encourages students that identify with groups historically under-represented in STEM professions, including Women, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, to apply.

Application Information:

Interested students should submit an application form by March 31. Please note, we require one recommendation submitted within the application.

Applicants will be notified no later than April 15th as to the status of their application.

For those that are looking for a flexible schedule and have limited capacity to attend live webinars and videoconferences, we will also offer the CAS Student Central Independent Summer Program, a self-paced alternative covering the same materials. The independent program includes an online forum for participants to pose questions, connect with each other, and obtain guidance. It excludes the case competition, and weekly mentor discussions. Applicants interested in applying specifically for the CAS Student Central Independent Summer Program should also complete the application form above.
