Rising College Freshmen and Sophomores Now Eligible for IIAG Past Presidents/YAC Scholarship
At its March meeting, IIAG's Executive Committee changed eligibility requirements for the IIAG's Past Presidents/YAC Scholarship to include rising college freshmen and sophomores. Previously only juniors and seniors enrolled in Georgia colleges or universities were eligible.
If you are employed with an IIAG member agency and have a college student or soon-to-be college student, please read more. Your child or dependent could be eligible to receive $1000-$1500!
Each year, $1000 is awarded to a dependent child of a full time employee of an IIAG member agency (or a dependent child of the principal of an IIAG member agency when the principal is the sole agent or employee.) To be eligible, students must be enrolled full-time as afreshman, sophomore, junior or senior in a four-year accredited public or private Georgia college or university. The student is eligible for the scholarship for any field of study; however, if the student is an insurance or risk management major, the scholarship will be increased by $500.
To be eligible for consideration, the applicant must fully complete the scholarship application including the attachments and submit the application to the committee prior to the deadline, June 1.
The annual recipients of the scholarships are chosen by a committee of three past presidents to be selected by the current president. The chairman of the committee will be the most senior past president. The scholarship will be awarded each year prior to July 1 and paid by August 1.
IIAG's Past Presidents Scholarship originated in 2004-2005, during the presidency of Kay Wimberly (Blount, Burke, Wimberly, and Hendricks/Statesboro), and was established 2005-2006 program year under President David F. Lewis, AAI, (Bryant, Wharton & Thompson Risk Advisors/Alpharetta)
The Young Agents Committee Leaders under the leadership of Clint Ivy, AIP, CIC (Fleming and Riles Insurance/Albany), voted unanimously in 2008 to include the Past Presidents Scholarship Fund as a beneficiary of the annual YAC Charity Golf Tournament in addition to a social charity of the YAC Chairman’s Choice. IIAG’s Executive Committee renamed the scholarship budget, from gifts made in the honor or memory of IIAG members, from IIAG Past Presidents who are still active or retired, from agency principals and associates, and from our friends at the Georgia 1752 Club.
