“Spencer has a proven record of providing experiential learning opportunities to students. Our internship program is a prime example,” said Roger Andrews, Chairman of Spencer’s Internship Grant Committee. “As the industry celebrates Insurance Careers Month, we are excited to announce these 40 internship grants that will provide students hands-on experience in a corporate risk management department. Since 1997, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.7 million in internship grants — including $200,000 this year — to expose students to a dynamic industry with vast career potential. We appreciate the industry’s support of this program and thank our generous sponsors.”
