Subject: DFW RIMS – Information about Scholarships, Awards, and Grants

Hello DFW RIMS University Partners!

The DFW RIMS Education Committee has provided the descriptions below regarding the scholarships, conference awards, and grants that DFW RIMS offers (applications attached). This may be helpful when describing our programs to students, or if you need verbiage for your websites. In addition to those programs identified below, you may recall that the Spencer Educational Foundation offers grants and scholarships; you may see the programs they offer at their updated website (www.spencered.org).

DFW RIMS Scholarships

DFW RIMS is proud to continue its program of offering scholarships to outstanding applicants who are focused on a career in risk management, insurance and related disciplines. The award requires the recipient be enrolled full-time at an institution of higher education during the academic year. Awards vary depending on multiple factors, including the available amount of the scholarship fund, the number of eligible applicants, and the applicants’ qualifications. The awards generally run in the range of $250 to $3,000 per scholarship.

The DFW RIMS Education Committee will consider applicants who meet some or all of the following criteria:

1. enrollment status: full-time undergraduate or graduate student (preferably undergraduate junior/senior)

2. field of study – normally a risk management discipline within a business curriculum

3. career objective in risk management

4. grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale

5. relevant work experience

6. leadership skills

7. need

8. DFW RIMS membership (note that free student memberships are available)

9. membership in the Gamma Iota Sigma risk management fraternity

The scholarship applications deadline is September 15. Scholarship recipients are announced in late September or early October and recipients are requested to attend DFW RIMS’s Fall Conference in order to receive their scholarship. When available, Fall Symposium information may be found on the DFW RIMS website (http://dallasftworth.rims.org/).

RIMS Conference Award

DFW RIMS typically awards opportunities to attend the national RIMS Conference to one or more college students. The DFW RIMS Education Committee will consider applicants who meet some or all of the following criteria:

1. enrollment status: full-time undergraduate or graduate student (preferably undergraduate senior)

2. field of study: normally a risk management discipline within a business curriculum

Students are expected to attend the entire conference and a mentor will be assigned to provide guidance if needed. Students will be asked to write a brief summary of the conference experience; these summaries may be published in one of the DFW RIMS monthly newsletters. Awards include conference attendance at the student rate (student will need to become a RIMS member), round trip airfare, hotel accommodations (2 students per room), and an honorarium check for expenses. For further information on the RIMS Conference dates and schedule, please go to www.RIMS.org.

The RIMS Conference Award application deadline is November 30 and recipients will be notified by February of the following year.
