Hickman Scholars Program
The Society of Actuaries James C. Hickman Scholar program was established to increase the number of academic actuaries who hold a PhD and an actuarial designation, and who intend to pursue academic careers in the United States or Canada. The program is designed to provide stipends to doctoral students who will, through their studies, address research and education needs of the profession, including both the theoretical and practical aspects. Each stipend is generally $20,000 per academic year, renewable up to four times. All eligible candidates are encouraged to apply.
