Calling all undergraduate and graduate black students pursuing actuarial careers! The International Association of Black Actuaries (IABA) has recently launched its Scholarship and Boot Camp applications!

IABA Scholarship

IABA Bootcamp

The IABA Actuarial Boot Camp is the premier program for transitioning black actuarial students to the actuarial industry. The majority of past attendees report that the Boot Camp was instrumental in confirming their interest in the career and helping them through the interview process. In many cases, they were introduced to their employer through their Boot Camp participation.  Visit the website for more information (https://blackactuaries.site-ym.com/page/2018IABABootCamp)
