Let’s have a frank conversation.

Scholarships awarded to outstanding students dedicated to supporting the insurance industry

Frankenmuth Insurance is pleased to announce the 2019 recipients of scholarships through the Frankenmuth Insurance Scholarship Foundation, which supports scholarship programs for Frankenmuth High School seniors, as well as college upperclassmen whose parent or legal guardian is an employee of Frankenmuth Insurance or an independent insurance agency that represents Frankenmuth Insurance or its subsidiary, Patriot Insurance.

Twenty-four students were chosen by a selection committee through the Frankenmuth Community Foundation, which administers the Frankenmuth Insurance Scholarship Foundation programs. The recipients were selected based on their outstanding academic performance, extracurricular involvement in school activities and participation in community service projects. In addition, each applicant was required to submit a 500-word essay about why he/she should be selected as a scholarship recipient.

“Our company is proud to invest in the bright futures of students in the communities where our employees and agents live and work,” says Fred Edmond, President & COO of Frankenmuth Insurance, who serves as the chairperson of the Frankenmuth Insurance Scholarship Foundation Committee. “Each scholarship program is aimed at helping students pursue careers that support the insurance industry, and this next generation of future professionals show a great deal of promising talent and leadership.”

From one student working toward developing enhanced insurance information systems to another majoring in risk management who overcame learning disabilities at a young age, this year’s applicants are already embarking on paths that will strengthen the insurance industry.
