Mitchell Tamashunas was a receipient of the Curtis E. Huntington Memorial Scholarship from the Actuarial Foundation. Congratulations Mitch!
The Curtis E. Huntington, FSA, MAAA, FCA, MSPA (1942-2013) Memorial Scholarship (formerly the John Culver Wooddy Scholarship) was established to recognize the remarkably positive impact Huntington had on the actuarial profession. He worked tirelessly to help students receive the financial assistance they needed. Given Huntington’s 30 years of service to the actuarial profession and to his students, it is only fitting that the scholarship continues in his name.
The Scholarship is awarded annually to undergraduate students who will receive their degree in December 2018, spring/summer 2019 and no later than August 31, 2019. Students must be enrolled as a full-time student at a U.S. accredited educational institution, have successfully completed at least one actuarial examination, have a minimum cumulative GPAof 3.0 (on 4.0 scale) and must be nominated by a professor at their school. Each year, selected students receive a $2,000 scholarship award.
The award will be divided to cover multiple semesters or other terms comprising the academic year. All scholarship awards are made payable to the U.S. accredited educational institution. Recipients attending school for a portion of the upcoming year (e.g., one semester) will receive the corresponding portion of a full year scholarship amount.
