The Chicago Chapter of the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA) will host the 12th Annual Scholarship Luncheon on May 16, 2018!

The 12th Annual NAAIA Chicago Scholarship Luncheon will be held at the Union League Club in Chicago, Illinois on May 16, 2018.  Over the past eleven years, we have awarded almost $100,000 in scholarships to deserving students in the Chicago area.  One of our ongoing missions is expose young people in our community to the insurance industry and recognize their positive accomplishments during these challenging times.


Through these scholarships, NAAIA Chicago is proud to reach out to the next generation of industry talent.  Our theme for 2018 is “Hope Is Not a Strategy” and by supporting the outstanding academic achievements and personal triumphs of these young people we cement our legacy and invest in future leaders.


Scholarship applicants must be African American high school seniors. All majors will be considered; however, prospective Insurance, Risk Management, Business, Computer Science, Actuarial Science and Finance majors are preferred.  Applicants will be judged on the following:

  • GPA
