Selection Criteria

Eligible students will be selected using a matrix qualification system.  Applicants will be evaluated on a point system based on eligibility requirements, strength of personal statement, financial need, relevance of internship to the insurance industry, etc.

Those that meet or exceed a predetermined total score will be selected, if funds are still available. 

Applicants will be notified of the decision on an ongoing basis as applications are received and scored, until all funds have been awarded.



Application Deadlines

Students are encouraged to apply early because funds are limited. Application batches will be reviewed and candidates selected on a two-week rolling basis to ensure fair opportunity of fund disbursement.

Selected individuals must provide proof of acceptance of the identified internship included in the application within two weeks of formal notification by the CPCU Society. 

NOTE: We understand that there may be uncertainty as to whether your internship will be in-person or virtual, given Covid-19.  Please complete the financial aid application form, including expected expenses, to the best of your ability. 

Money will be disbursed to all those awarded financial aid on April 15.  If you internship goes virtual, you must notify us by April 1 and adjust expected costs as needed.
