CAS Trust Scholarship Program
The objective of the scholarship is to further students' interest in the property/casualty actuarial profession and encourage pursuit of the CAS designations. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of individual merit. The CAS Trust Scholarship Program will award up to three scholarships to deserving students for the 2014-2015 academic year. First place will receive a $10,000 scholarship, and Second and Third Place if chosen will each be awarded a $5,000 scholarship.
