Big “I” Nebraska and the IIAN Foundation are proud to offer a brand new scholarship for insurance professionals early in their careers to further their education!
The Independent Insurance Agents of Nebraska Foundation is now accepting applications for two scholarships for employees of IIAN member agencies: one for new professionals in their first year of employment for up to $500, and one for professionals in their second through fifth year of employment for up to $1,000.
These employees can use the scholarship funds to pursue a certificate or designation through courses sponsored by IIAN, The Institutes, The National Alliance, or another approved provider. The course must be completed within 12 months of receiving the scholarship.
“I believe the new insurance professional scholarships continue to show our commitment to insurance education and the importance of independent agents being the experts in our industry,” said Jon Hongsermeier, IIAN Foundation President. “It is our goal for member agents new in the industry to be able to pursue educational opportunities without the fear of financial burden.”
Big “I” Nebraska will accept applications award these scholarships twice a year. The first application window is open Jan. 1-31, 2022! The winner will be announced February 15.
Later on, another application window will be open July 1-31, 2022. Those winners will be announced on August 15.
“I’m very much looking forward to seeing new agents take advantage of this program and scholarship winners obtain their industry designations,” Hongsermeier said. “The IIAN Foundation looks forward to celebrating these achievements with our members.”
