OLA Academic Scholarships are open!
Thanks to our Platinum and Gold sponsors, OLA awards academic scholarships to Latines who will be attending a US college/university next school year and are interested in the actuarial profession.
Named scholarships: Winners receive $5,000 and are guaranteed an actuarial internship for Summer 2024. Finalists for the named scholarship will be required to interview.
General scholarships: Winners receive awards of various amounts. The top student will receive the “OLA Cresta Scholarship”, which is a $7,500 award. In Spanish, “ola” means wave, and “cresta” is the crest (top) of the wave. With this award, OLA will be recognizing top future Latine actuaries.
