Equality of Opportunity Scholarship
In 2021, the Actuarial Foundation of Canada (AFC) established its Equality of Opportunity Fund (EOS) to promote diversity in the actuarial, mathematics & statistics, data management and computer science professions. The EOS Fund will provide scholarships to eligible Canadian students facing financial and societal barriers to attending their intended university or college program.
Annual scholarships of (approximately) $4,000 (University) and $2,000 (College) will be awarded to successful applicants for the duration of the student’s program, to a maximum of 4 years, provided that they meet the eligibility criteria of the EOS Fund, as described below:
Each year, the recipients of the scholarships will be chosen based on the selection criteria. To qualify each student will have had to apply or be accepted into a Canadian university program leading to a degree in one of the eligible disciplines listed above.
The EOS Fund is administered by the AFC. The AFC issues tax receipts, invests and manages all charitable donations to the fund, promotes the award among the actuarial community, and administers the annual distribution of the scholarships.AFC Equality Scholarship Application
