Risk Management and Insurance Scholarships
Each year, the Brantley Risk and Insurance Center is able to support Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) majors with more than $80,000 of scholarships. Scholarships are distributed on merit and need basis. Special consideration is given to students from historically underrepresented backgrounds within the insurance industry.
To apply for a general scholarship, please fill out this form.
The purpose of the High Performers Scholarship is to allow Walker College of Business students the opportunity to explore the Risk Management and Insurance major while also fulfilling a three-hour elective.
The $750 scholarship is open to students with a minimum GPA of 3.0, and allows up to 20 students per semester to explore the basics of the insurance field through enrollment in the Principles of Risk Management course (FIN 3100). GPA requirements may be waived for students with extenuating circumstances or proof of academic growth.
To earn the scholarship, participating students must:
· Enroll in FIN 3100, Principles of Risk Management and Insurance
· Participate in a minimum of 3 AppState Gamma Iota Sigma (student Risk Management & Insurance club) events
· Successfully complete the class with a "B" or higher grade.
