The Griffith Foundation Awards Over $22,000 In Scholarships

The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation awarded $22,750 in scholarships to 22 students at six colleges and universities. The scholarships support students studying risk management, insurance, or actuarial science.

The foundation offers scholarships to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to take risk management and insurance courses. Scholarships were awarded to students at the following institutions, all of which offer insurance related degrees or courses:

  • Capital University
  • James A. Rhodes State College
  • Ohio Dominican University
  • Ohio State University
  • Temple University
  • Wittenberg University

“We were very pleased to award a record number of scholarships and money this year to support the future leaders of our industry,” says Jason Terrell, program director at The Griffith Foundation.  “Programs like these are critical in a time when the insurance industry is facing a projected talent shortage in the coming years.”

The Griffith Foundation oversees multiple scholarship opportunities annually. In addition to risk management, insurance and actuarial science majors, eligible applicants include business and non-business majors who make a commitment to take risk management and insurance courses. Some scholarships have institutional, geographic, or other special eligibility requirements and varying deadlines.
