Actuarial Foundation Scholarships
Actuarial Foundation Scholarships support colleges students who want to pursue a career in the actuarial profession. An actuary is a business professional who deals with the financial impact of risk and uncertainty, often compiling and analyzing statistics, and using them to calculate and manage personal and corporate risk.

Created in 1994, the Actuarial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that was designed to help facilitate and broaden the profession's contribution to society. The foundation accomplishes this by exploring innovative ways to have actuarial skills in the public interest.

There are several scholarships awarded by the foundation: the Actuarial Diversity Scholarship, the Actuary of Tomorrow – Stuart A. Robertson Memorial Scholarship, the John Culver Wooddy Scholarship, and the Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship.

The Actuarial Diversity Scholarship is an annual scholarship program for minority students (African American, Hispanic and Native American) that recognizes academic achievements of full-time undergraduate and graduate students.

The Actuary of Tomorrow – Stuart A. Robertson Memorial Scholarship recognizes and encourages the academic achievements of all full-time undergraduate students pursuing a career in actuarial science.

The John Culver Wooddy Scholarship is awarded annually only to college seniors who have successfully completed at least one actuarial examination, rank in the top quartile of their class and are nominated by a professor at their school.

The Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship is an annual scholarship program for Caribbean students who are attending University of the West Indies who demonstrate a strong record of accomplishment, leadership qualities and commitment to becoming an actuary.

The deadline for this scholarship usually VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually UP TO $3,000.
