OLA Study Material Stipend (New 2020)

As a response to these extraordinary times due to COVID-19, OLA launched a new program to help Latinx actuarial candidates with the cost of study exam material for exams P/1, FM/2 and IFM.  We are conscious that the resulting restrictions imposed have impacted many people’s livelihoods, and some students and their families are now under financial strain.  We hope that this program will benefit the Latinx candidates as they pursue their actuarial careers.

An online program to help Latinx actuarial candidates with the job search process.  We provide training on resume writing, interviewing, networking, and creating an effective LinkedIn profile. We prepare candidates attending career fairs in August-October. This program has closed for 2020 but will reopen in early 2021!

OLA Exam Reimbursement

It is common in the actuarial profession to have to retake exams, even after hundreds of hours of study!  Failure does not indicate a person’s inability to become an Actuary, especially with a grade of 4 or 5, exams are challenging!

Latinxs who have recently failed exams P/1, FM/2 and IFM with a score of 4 or 5 are eligible for reimbursement.  To learn more and to apply:  OLA Exam Reimbursement
