Student Educational Scholarships

Deadline is 3/15/18


URMIA seeks to develop the next generation of higher education risk managers with a scholarship award of $2,500 for up to three students majoring in risk management or a related field. Recipients of this award also receive support for the requirement to attend URMIA’s 2018 Annual Conference, where they receive recognition and actively participate in an itinerary set by URMIA. Award winners will be notified in May, and URMIA will begin to disburse funds in August.


To be eligible to apply, the applicant must be a full-time student seeking a degree at a four-year institution of higher education in the U.S. as a rising junior, senior or masters/doctoral candidate in the 2018-2019 academic year. Furthermore, applicants must be majoring in a risk management or related field. College students currently enrolled in two-year community colleges who will continue their education as juniors at a four-year institution in the fall also are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who express a desire to have a career in higher education risk management.
