Malvern, PA (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation has announced that 21 undergraduate and graduate students from nine states have been selected as recipients of $63,000 in scholarship funds.These biannual scholarships are available to students who are in good academic standing and are committed to pursuing careers in the insurance industry.
Through scholarship opportunities, selected students are not only encouraged to take risk management and insurance courses, but also they can receive the financial support they need to complete their degrees.This year, additional scholarship funds were made available to students thanks to the contributions of Westfield Insurance and Westfield Agents Association (WAA).
“The Griffith Foundation’s Westfield Scholarship has taken away some of the financial burden while I work my way through school,” said Jennifer Richey, a student at Missouri State University and a 2014 scholarship recipient. “I will have more time dedicated to studying to pass exams rather than to holding multiple jobs to pay for college.”
Students from the following institutions were awarded scholarship funds:
- Appalachian State University
- Bradley University
- Butler University
- Drake University
- Eastern Kentucky University
- Illinois State University
- Kent State University
- Missouri State University
- Ohio State University
- Olivet College
- Temple University
“I congratulate each of the 2014 Spring Scholarship recipients and thank all of those who participated,” said Jason Terrell, The Griffith Foundation’s managing director. “We had a record number of impressive and inspiring applications submitted by students this year. Such quality is a reflection of not only the students’ capabilities but also the work and dedication of their professors.”
