W+K APIG Scholarship 2017 – Submissions Open Now!

In partnership with APIG, we are delighted to announce our annual W+K APIG Scholarship, aimed at supporting the career development of a young insurance professional in Australia practising in professional indemnity and financial lines insurance.

The Scholarship recognises an outstanding contribution to the industry by a young APIG member each year with the winner benefiting from a sponsorship package which includes:

  • attendance at the Professional Indemnity Forum Conference to be held at the Robinson College, Cambridge University in the UK in July 2018
  • a planned visit to the Lloyd’s market in London
  • $4,000 towards return economy airfares and transfers
  • $3,500 towards accommodation and spending.

Candidates are required to produce a brief submission outlining their contribution to financial lines insurance and their views on the present and/or future of the industry from a perspective that affects their position. The winner will be selected by a judging panel comprising four APIG Committee members and one representative from W+K, and will be announced on 7 September 2017.

W+K is delighted to partner with APIG in promoting such a positive initiative to help attract and retain the best talent to this important part of the insurance market, and we encourage all eligible candidates to apply for this invaluable career experience.

The 2016 Scholarship winner, Michael Forster of Suncorp is about to embark on his exciting trip to the PIF Conference in Cambridge and we look forward to hearing about his attendance at the conference and visit to the Lloyd’s insurance market.

Submissions are now open with full details and application forms available from the APIG website. The closing date for submissions is Friday, 11 August 2017.
