The annual BFIS Bermuda Summer Intern programme, now in its seventeenth year, commenced this week for six undergraduate students who will spend the next three weeks learning about how the Bermuda insurance industry works, the myriad careers and different areas of insurance. The students will be visiting 30 insurance, reinsurance companies and related organisations in Hamilton over the three-week programme.

The programme started today and will end on June 8.

This year’s Bermuda interns are Courtney Browne, geography and environmental science, University of Waterloo; Courtney Kerr, English, Western University, Ontario; Meagan Stecko, actuarial science, Western University, Ontario; Evan Watkins, business management and marketing, University of Stirling, UK; and visiting students from the Katie School of Insurance and Risk Management, Sal D’Acquisto and Adrian Villa, risk management, insurance and finance, Illinois State University.

The BFIS Summer Intern Programmes are open to students focused on careers in the insurance sector who are usually in either their junior or senior year at university, giving them the opportunity to learn about the insurance markets of either Bermuda, London, Chicago or Atlanta. Including this year’s interns, 160 Bermudian students have now participated in these very intensive programmes, with almost all entering the insurance sector on graduation.

On July 26, all four teams will make presentations to the BFIS board and hosting company representatives on what they gained from the programme. Students are welcome to attend this.

For more information, contact the BFIS office at info@bfis.bm. Applications for the 2019 programmes will open on January 1 on bermudascholarships.com
