Rising Insurance Star Executives, LLC, also known as R.I.S.E., and IASIU announced that five scholarships will be awarded this year, as part of a special partnership aimed at promoting young professionals in SIU.
The scholarships are funded by IASIU and sponsors of RISE, including companies like GEICO and MetLife. Applications will be accepted via the R.I.S.E. website through July 31st. Winners will be selected by the R.I.S.E. advisory board and approved by IASIU.
“We are excited to partner with R.I.S.E. to further awareness of IASIU within the young SIU professional community. IASIU is committed to supporting our young SIU professional community and consider them instrumental in building and guiding our organization into the future,” commented Celeste Dodson, IASIU Vice President.
“We value organizations like IASIU who are willing to support the movement for young professionals in the insurance industry,” added Amy Cooper, founder of R.I.S.E. “In today’s world, getting young professionals involved in conferences like IASIU’s Annual Seminar are critical to engaging and retaining talent in our industry.”
Both organizations share a passion for the future of the insurance industry, and specifically the SIU community. This partnership highlights the benefits of collaboration, not just for the young professionals who are receiving the scholarships, but also for the industry as a whole.
R.I.S.E. Advisory Board Member and SIU Director at MetLife, John Sargent, expressed, “At R.I.S.E. we recognize the challenges the industry faces to entice young individuals into the insurance industry. Partnering with IASIU allows us to open what some see as a very closed area of the insurance industry to associates who may have never considered this path.”
“Building strong partnerships with groups like R.I.S.E. are a way to further our mission to provide a coordinated effort to combat insurance fraud and it’s great to be able to help these investigators come to the seminar and soak up the top-notch education and great networking opportunities,” remarked Margaret Fleming, IASIU Seminar Chair.
This year’s IASIU conference in Phoenix, AZ will kick off with a joint reception for R.I.S.E. professionals and new IASIU members to network, meet the IASIU board and chapter presidents, and recognition for the scholarship winners.
Rising Insurance Star Executives launched in 2017 as a springboard for those just starting out in insurance. R.I.S.E. has since morphed into a movement dedicated to changing the image of the insurance industry, attracting new talent, and helping those just getting started to advance their careers and explore what the industry has to offer.
