Maximize the Industry’s Future Talent in Your Firm
Studies show that internships are the insurance brokerage industry’s most successful tool in the recruitment of college students. In light of that, part of The Council Foundation’s mission is to bring fresh, diverse talent into the brokerage sector by way of internships with Council member firms. Students who demonstrate excellence in their internship and the ability and desire to succeed at your firm have the opportunity to be nominated by you for a $5,000 scholarship.
In awarding the scholarships, the selection committee will look for candidates who have the potential to excel as leaders and contributors in the commercial insurance brokerage business sector – and at your firm.
Eligibility to participate in the scholarship program is a donation to The Council Foundation. Member firms have the opportunity to fulfill this requirement during their annual dues renewal – as well as prior to the launch of the scholarship program. If you have questions or want to inquire about your firm’s eligibility status, contact Katie Consoli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Council has awarded $3.23 million in academic scholarships to 646 students since 2006.
Are you a student interested in interning? We’d love to have you. Our member firms are located all over the globe.
