Applications Now Being Accepted for the 2024 CAS Student Central Summer Program!

Applications are now open for the 2024 CAS Student Central Summer Program! Developed by practicing actuaries, this free eight-week program will support university students’ career growth by providing technical and soft skill development, as well as mentorships and networking opportunities.

Since its inception in 2020, this educational program has rapidly gained popularity among CAS Student Central members. Hear firsthand what a former participant has to say about the program and how it has positively impacted their actuarial journey:

“I genuinely believe that the CAS summer program is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to dive deep into the world of actuarial science. It’s not just about academics; it’s about building a network, gaining practical exposure, and shaping your future in a dynamic field.”

2024 Program Details

The program will run from Monday, June 10 – Friday, August 2. 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  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 digital badge 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 2024.

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 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.

The CAS is committed to providing universal access to all of our programs. Any accommodation requests can be submitted during program enrollment process once admissions notifications have been circulated.

Application Information:

Interested students should submit an application form by April 10. Please note, we require one recommendation submitted within the application.

Applicants will be notified no later than May 1 as to the status of their application.

For those that are looking for a flexible schedule and have limited capacity to attend weekly cohort meetings, 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. The program will run from June 24-August 2. Applicants interested in applying specifically for the CAS Student Central Independent Summer Program should also complete the application form above.
