History of the Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship

The Caribbean Actuarial Scholarship was established in 2008 in memory of Basil L. and Monica G. Virtue by their son-in-law, S. Michael McLaughlin, FSA, MAAA, an actuary who graduated from UWI.

 

A $500.00 bonus award is available for any Caribbean Scholarship recipient for each CAS, IFoA or SOA exam passed while enrolled in the Actuarial Science Program at the University of the West Indies. The Actuarial Foundation is pleased to announce that three individuals have received this bonus award to date.
