Actuary – A Career Change: Elizabeth M. Mauro Reimbursement Program



The Actuary - A Career Change: Elizabeth M. Mauro Reimbursement Program recognizes the limited resources available to career changers aspiring to transition into the actuarial profession. This Actuarial Exam Reimbursement Program opportunity was established in memory of Elizabeth M. (Liz) Mauro to honor her dedication to becoming an actuary following several years in another profession.  She began the arduous task of taking math classes and studying for actuarial exams in order to enter the profession and start her new career.  In the spring of 2011, Liz passed her final exam to attain fellowship in the Casualty Actuarial Society. Many individuals making the career transition after having established a previous career outside the actuarial profession have limited information on study resources and must finance their own study materials and exam registration fees.  Not only can this be a challenge, but it may discourage or prohibit those interested in joining the actuarial profession from doing so. We hope this reimbursement program, in Liz’s memory, will serve as a reminder of her commitment and her spirit of helping others achieve their goals.

The 2017-2018 application period is now open.
