Council Foundation Scholar Spotlight
In its continuing effort to help bolster the future of the commercial insurance brokerage industry, The Council Foundation recently awarded $375,000 in academic scholarships to 75 college juniors and seniors identified as standout interns at Council member firms.
A core part of the foundation’s mission is to help the commercial insurance brokerage industry attract the next generation of talent.
Interns received $5,000 each toward their college education.

The foundation’s scholarship program partners with member firms of The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers, using firms’ summer internship programs to introduce students from across the country to both the property/casualty and employee benefits sectors.
Upon the conclusion of their internship, students must formally be nominated by the respective brokerages at which they interned, and an independent committee then determines awardees. The ultimate goal is to expose the upcoming young professionals to the industry’s vast opportunities and to keep them in the business—and, ideally, in Council member firms—after graduation.
