The Big "I" National Young Agents Committee (YAC) encourages young agents – those under 40 years of age or with less than 5 years experience in the industry – to become aware of and get involved in the activities and programs of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (the Big "I").
Young Agent Scholarships
$500 First-time Attendee Scholarships
The Big “I” National Young Agents Committee will be presenting scholarships for select first-time attendees of the Big “I” Young Agents Leadership Institute to help defray the costs of attending the 2014 event which will be Sept. 12-13 at the Amway Grand in Grand Rapids Mich.
Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Supplies are limited.
Please return your completed Leadership Institute Scholarship Application nd brief essay to your state association to be considered for a scholarship. It is up to the discretion of the state association to submit an application to the national Young Agents Committee.
The deadline is August 1, 2014 or when the fund is depleted, whichever comes first. Please submit only one application for nomination for the $500 first-time attendee scholarships to Susan Bonner firstname.lastname@example.org. Because the scholarships are first-come first-serve, it’s recommended you apply early. Once funds are depleted, no more scholarships will be presented. Applicants must be first-time agent attendees. The scholarship funds will be distributed to the state association after the event.
$1000 State Attendance Award
A $1000 scholarship will be presented to the state young agents committee who has the most young agents in attendance at the Big “I” Fall Leadership Institute. Only registrations made by Aug. 30 will be considered in the tally. The national Young Agents Committee will post a bi-weekly tally of state registrations numbers on the young agents website until Aug. 15. The winner will be announced at the Big “I” Young Agents Leadership Presidents’ Panel. A drawing for an onsite $500 scholarship for one young agent attendee will also be conducted at the Presidents’ Panel (you must be present to win). No other paperwork needs to be submitted.
