Malvern, PA (PRWEB) May 12, 2016
Twenty students from twelve different undergraduate and graduate programs were selected as recipients of The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation’s scholarship offerings this spring. These funds will allow these students to continue advancing their education in preparation for future careers in risk management and insurance.
These scholarships support The Griffith Foundation’s efforts to inspire students to continue pursuing risk management and insurance careers, and they are offered biannually. In addition to awarding its own scholarship funds, The Griffith Foundation also administers scholarships on behalf of insurance industry organizations. For example, each year, $42,000 is awarded to six students through the Westfield Insurance and Westfield Agents Association scholarships.
“I was amazed to see that I had been given $2,000.00 through the Norm Ziegler Trailblazer Scholarship, administered by The Griffith Foundation,” said Laura Van Dyke, a student at Olivet College. “By receiving this aid, a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Now I can finish up my degree knowing that I will be in less debt.”
Scholarship funds were awarded to students from the following institutions:
- Butler University
- Georgia State University
- Howard University
- John Carroll University
- Kellogg Community College
- Kent State University
- Missouri State University
- Ohio State University
- Olivet College
- Rutgers University
- Temple University
- University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh
“I send my congratulations to each of the spring 2016 scholarship recipients,” said Jason Terrell, The Griffith Foundation’s vice president. “There are some remarkably talented students in this group, and we look forward to helping them in their educational pursuits. I am confident that these students will one day make great additions to the risk management and insurance industry.”
