    RIMS, the risk management society®, presented 36 students with a 2021 Anita Benedetti Student Involvement Program grant. The program, sponsored by The Spencer Educational Foundation, recognizes the achievements of outstanding undergraduate and graduate risk management and insurance students. This year, the students will receive complimentary registration to the all-virtual RIMS LIVE 2021 conference scheduled for April 19 – 30, as well one RIMS-CRMP certification prep-course and an exam.


    The ABSIP continues to recognize elite risk management and insurance undergraduates from outside of North America. The international group includes students from: Lingnan University in Hong Kong; National Insurance Academy in India; Universidad EAFIT in Colombia; and Peking University in China.


    “As business leaders continue to recognize the value of strong risk management and look toward their organizations’ future, building highly-skilled and highly-qualified risk management teams will be a top priority,” said RIMS President Ellen Dunkin. “Through the ABSIP program, RIMS creates opportunities for the next generation of risk leaders to learn, network and explore at the Society’s world-renowned annual conference and our certification.”  


    “The Spencer Educational Foundation is proud to partner with RIMS to provide this empowering, experiential learning opportunity to risk management and insurance students,” said Spencer’s Executive Director Megan Miller. “These formative experiences for students, where they can interact with practicing risk professionals, strengthens the industry’s talent pipeline and creates a path for rewarding careers in this field. This is the heart of what Spencer aims to do every day.”
