UNT seniors win Actuarial Diversity Scholarships

Math seniors TJ Gebreyohannes and Lindsey Whiting were each awarded $4,000 Actuarial Diversity Scholarships from The Actuarial Foundation. The scholarships were awarded to four highly qualified ethnic minority students from Texas who are on the path to becoming actuaries, professionals who compile and analyze statistics and use them to calculate insurance risks and premiums.

Gebreyohannes, of Ethiopia, aspires to work in a property and casualty insurance firm after graduation. Whiting, a four-year scholarship recipient, hopes to work for an insurance company.
