OLA Study Material Stipend

As a response to these extraordinary times due to COVID-19, OLA launched a 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 restrictions imposed 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.

First Time Exam Taker Stipend - new!

OLA is launching a new exam program aimed to support Latino 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!
