University Run Summer Programs
Actuarial Science Summer Camp for Women and Minorities
The purpose of Drake's summer actuarial program is to increase the volume of the pipeline for attracting minorities and women into professional careers in the insurance industry. The program focuses mainly on careers in actuarial science, but also provides some exposure to other insurance industry career paths that students with excellent to outstanding math abilities might consider pursuing.
Along with learning about careers in actuarial science and insurance, participants are required to complete and compete with others in making high quality, business professional presentations about real world actuarial science and insurance problems, adding to the program's strong academic component as a result. Each year, one camp participant will complete an externship at Royal Neighbors of America, an insurance company.
The 2011 Actuarial Science Summer Camp for Women and Minorities was made possible through the generous financial support of the Joint CAS/SOA Committee on Actuarial Diversity, Black Hawk College, Drake University, Royal Neighbors of America, Scott Community College and Woodmen of the World, and the in-kind support of AVIVA and Guide One.

The one-week program is designed especially for above-average African-American, Hispanic, and Native American high school students who excel in mathematics, enjoy learning, and like to solve complicated problems. If you have a passion for mathematics and an appetite for knowledge, you may have what it takes to be an actuary. This program will help you decide if an actuarial career is a way to use your mathematical ability.
Summer Academy of Mathematics and Science Program
The Summer Academy of Mathematics and Science (SAMS) sponsored by the Morgan State University Actuarial Science Program is a six-week academic summer program designed primarily for students preparing to enter the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades as well as for high school graduates who have exceptional interests in attending university to pursue math- and science-based careers and the drive to increase their Mathematics, English and Computer Science skills. This summer approximately 30-35 students will be selected to receive innovative classroom instruction as well as hands-on experiences in Mathematics, English (critical reading and writing skills) and Computer Science as well as investigate various careers in the sciences.
