Scholarships and Award Funding

The CPCU Society has established the Gert Sweeney Scholarship for University of Hartford Students majoring in Insurance/Finance. The Connecticut Valley Chapter of RIMS has sponsored students to attend their national conference. Also, we have competed in the Anita Benedetti student competition of the national Risk and Insurance Management Society, and a select group is chosen to attend their national conference - all expenses paid. Scholars chosen represent the best from across the country, and they are fortunate to participate in a program that provides them with hands-on opportunity to meet risk managers, employee benefits consultants, insurance executive, and agents and brokers from all over the United States and Canada.

Organizations such as Travelers, Partners Re, the Angus Robinson Jr. Memorial Foundation, the Insurance Scholarship Foundation of America and the Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies have all provided scholarships to our majors. Also, our students have done internships at most of the major financial companies.

Our undergraduate and graduate programs also have benefited from a close relationship with the Spencer Foundation. Several have been chosen to be Spencer Scholars, which provides a $5,000 stipend and, most importantly, an industry mentor. A $10,000 scholarship is available for graduate students.
