79 Students Receive InVEST® Scholarships

InVEST® has awarded $73,500 in scholarships to 79 students pursuing insurance-related degrees. This year’s scholarship recipients represent 23 high schools, colleges and universities in the states of CA, CT, FL, GA, LA, MI, NH, NY and OH.

 

Scholarship hopefuls from across the country submitted essays describing the influence and benefits of InVEST for their educational plans. Selection factors included essay quality, the applicant’s GPA and their extracurricular activities.

 

Along with corporate and direct contributions, proceeds generated by the InVEST Silent and Live auctions held during the Big “I” Legislative Conference help fund scholarships. The institute of higher learning each student attends receives scholarship checks directly and uses them exclusively for the student’s educational expenses.
