 Other Ways To Get Involved

The Brantley Risk & Insurance Center was established in 1988 as a way to connect the academic programs within Appalachian State University to the insurance industry. We are always looking for mutually-beneficial partnerships which connect students and industry professionals.

Thank You

Thank you to the many individuals, agents, corporations, and alumni who financially support the mission of the Brantley Risk & Insurance Center. Since it's inception in 1988, the Brantley Center has not received state funds to operate. We rely entirely on private contributions for passionate people who want to make a positive impact upon the life of an RMI student, and to help create the next generation of industry professionals.

There are many ways for you to contribute. Here are some examples what donations support:

  • Scholarships for deserving RMI students
  • Student travel to state, regional, national and international conferences and events
  • Sponsorship of events, research, etc.
  • If you can dream it – we can achieve it! Be creative and let us know how we can make a positive impact to the industry.

Private scholarship support is crucial for many of our RMI students, and we thank you greatly for your gifts. Without these scholarship gifts, many students would not be able to afford a quality Appalachian education.
