First Time Exam Taker Stipend

OLA launched a new exam program aimed to support Latine actuarial candidates who are pursuing the actuarial profession and have not yet begun to take exams. OLA will award a First Time Exam Taker Stipend to candidates who need financial support to get their actuarial exams started.  OLA is happy to be able to lessen the financial burden for candidates who need this aid so that they can focus on studying!

Need financial help to buy study material for your actuarial exams?  OLA helps Latine actuarial candidates with the cost of study exam material for exams P/1, FM/2, IFM, MAS or FAM.  We are conscious that some students and their families are under financial strain and we hope that this program will benefit Latine candidates as they pursue their actuarial careers.
