For the second year in a row, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student Jordan Schwartz has received the Actuarial Diversity Scholarship from the Actuarial Foundation. The award recognizes the academic achievements of full-time undergraduate students planning to pursue careers in the actuarial profession.
Schwartz, a junior actuarial science major from Rapid River, Michigan, is one of 42 college students in the nation to receive the award this year, which promotes cultural diversity through its recognition of black, African American, Hispanic and Native North American students.
As a part of the award, Schwartz will receive a $3,000 scholarship and the opportunity to work with an actuary who will serve as a mentor throughout the year.
The Actuarial Foundation is an organization established in 1994 to help facilitate and broaden the actuarial profession's contribution to society. The mission of the foundation is to develop, fund and execute education, scholarship and research programs that serve the public and the profession by harnessing the talents and resources of actuaries.
