Now in its 17th year, the scholarship celebrates outstanding insurance and reinsurance professionals, strengthens international industry links and emphasises the significance of continuing professional development in all aspects of insurance.
Applications are now open in Australia, New Zealand, or Papua New Guinea from May 12, 2022, to July 1, 2022. Interested applicants must have no more than 10 years of experience in insurance or reinsurance and must write a 2,500-word essay on this year's topic: “The Increasing Complexities of Reinsurance Requirements.”
Robert De Souza, CEO Australia and New Zealand, Aon Reinsurance Solutions, said this year's topic is very timely.
“With an opportunity to analyse the key issues significant to our industry, the Aon Scholarship gives our insurance professionals the opportunity to not only develop and network but also contribute to inspiring our industry locally and across the world,” De Souza continued. “Winning the Aon Scholarship offers a memorable career-building experience for those who are up for the challenge.”
The scholarship winner will attend either the 2023 Aon Global Clients Reinsurance Seminar in London or the 2023 Aon Hazards Conference in Australia – subject to travel availability – both highly regarded globally as an outstanding educational opportunity for insurance and reinsurance professionals.
ANZIIF CEO Prue Willsford encourages insurance and reinsurance professionals to apply for the scholarship, which has enabled professionals to learn, grow, and expand their horizons within the industry.
“We are proud to be able to provide this invaluable professional development opportunity to an insurance professional and hopefully the next generation of leaders,” Willsford added.
