The Actuary of Tomorrow – Stuart A. Robertson Memorial Scholarship
Stuart A. Robertson, FSA, MAAA (1918-2005) was a distinguished actuary who, along with Wendell Milliman, co-founded the actuarial and consulting firm Milliman & Robertson (now Milliman, Inc.). Robertson served as CEO and Chairman of the firm for many years and was active in the actuarial profession, serving on the Society of Actuaries Board of Governors and in other capacities. The Actuary of Tomorrow – Stuart A. Robertson Memorial Scholarship was established to honor his dedication to excellence and recognize his tremendously positive influence on the professional lives of many colleagues. Funding is provided by Milliman, Inc. and several of Robertson’s colleagues and friends.
The Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship
The Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship was established in 2008 in memory of Basil L. and Monica G. Virtue by their son-in-law, S. Michael McLaughlin, FSA, MAAA, an actuary who graduated from UWI.
The Curtis E. Huntington Memorial
Curtis E. Huntington, FSA, MAAA, FCA, MSPA, was known for his inspiring enthusiasm for the actuarial profession and for his incredible dedication to his students. As the head of the Actuarial Department at the University of Michigan, he worked tirelessly to help students receive the financial assistance they needed. Given Huntington’s 30 years of service to his students, it is only fitting that the John Culver Wooddy Scholarship continues in his name. Curtis also served as a Foundation Trustee and as Chair of the Actuarial Research Committee.
The Actuarial Diversity Scholarship
The Actuarial Diversity Scholarship was formed in 1977 as a joint effort by the Casualty Actuarial Society and the Society of Actuaries and has opened the door to the actuarial profession for hundreds of minority students. In 2008, this scholarship program was transferred to The Actuarial Foundation to further strengthen, increase and assure the continuation of a diverse, high-quality actuarial candidate pool.
We wish to thank our most generous corporate sponsors for their continued support in encouraging students in their academic pursuits on the path to becoming an actuary.
