Diversity Exam Reimbursement Program

The CAS/SOA Committee on Actuarial Diversity is offering a reimbursement program rewarding those Diversity candidates who pass Exam P/1 and/or FM/2. Diversity candidates – African North American, Hispanic, or Native North American – who pass Exam P/1 and/or Exam FM/2 will be reimbursed for the fees for the passed exam. An applicant must be either a U.S. citizen or have a permanent resident visa. This reimbursement program is not designed for individuals employed full-time in an actuarial position.

    and email to Beth Gall and Margaret Kerr.
