Ameritas Life Lessons Scholarship

Ameritas is proud to again sponsor a $5,000 scholarship available through the Life Happens annual Life Lessons Scholarship Program. The program is designed for college students and college-bound high school seniors to share their experience about the importance of having life insurance coverage for their family.

Qualified applicants will submit either a 500-word essay or a 3-minute video to Life Happens discussing how the death of a parent or guardian financially affected their life.
