The MassMutual Scholars Program is funded by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company and is focused on expanding access and opportunity of higher education and employment to students who reflect the rich cultural diversity of our nation. We seek to increase the number of students completing college nationally, assist in decreasing student debt, raise awareness of careers in insurance and financial services, and recruit and retain the top talent touched by our programs.
In 2016, MassMutual looks forward to offering $150,000 in total funding; assisting at least 30 students entering their sophomore, junior, senior, or fifth year of undergraduate coursework with a scholarship worth up to $5,000. Students must complete and submit for federal financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Form (FAFSA). Preference will be given to students who demonstrate an interest in pursuing a career in the insurance and financial industry.
