Future in Financial Services (FFS) Scholarship & Internship Program  

Maximize the Industry’s Future Talent in Your Organization

As the insurance industry and workforce continue to evolve, talent recruitment, development and retention are becoming increasingly important. To cover the pending talent gap, young insurance professionals must be hired to replace every currently employed insurance professional. 

In response, the NAILBA Charitable Foundation has created the Future in Financial Services (FFS) Scholarship & Internship Program — to help secure the future of the industry by attracting and developing tomorrow’s workforce.

The mission of the FFS Program is to bring fresh, diverse talent into the independent life brokerage sector by way of scholarships and internships with NAILBA member agencies and partners.

FFS Scholarship & Internship Program (2022) 

The FFS Program will launch in 2022 with a focus on awarding scholarships to high-performing college students. Phase 2 of the FFS Program, which will introduce intern training and recruitment, will commence in 2023.  

Students can be nominated by NAILBA member agencies or industry partners for one of (4) $5,000 scholarships for the upcoming academic year. Candidates will need to demonstrate a keen interest in insurance advisory as well as leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, and academic merit. 

In addition, one well-deserving student will be awarded The Martin Greenberg Future in Financial Services Scholarship. This $10,000 award will go to the candidate exhibiting the greatest potential to excel as a leader and contributor in the independent life insurance brokerage business sector. 

FFS Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
• Enrolled full-time in a bachelor’s or associates degree program at an accredited education institution
• Entering sophomore, junior or senior year
• In good academic standing with their college or university (minimum of a 3.0 GPA)
• Nominated by a NAILBA member agency or industry partner
