First recipients of the London Life Scholarships are chosen
Shaonan Fang, Lorelei Vandenriessche and Ashley McAlpine are the fi rst recipients of the London Life Actuarial Career Scholarships.

Third-year Actuarial Sciences student, Ashley McAlpine and second-year Actuarial Sciences students, Shaonan Fang and Lorelei Vandenriessche are the first recipients of the London Life Actuarial Career Scholarships in the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences in the Faculty of Social Science.

The new scholarships were established through The Key to Giving™, the national corporate citizenship program of Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life. The two- and three-year continuing awards provide actuarial sciences students with scholarships based on high academic standing and leadership skills. The students
will also have summer work-placements with London Life to help build their skills and knowledge.

“Gaining valuable work experience is very important prior to graduation and entering the workforce,” says Ashley McAlpine. “I am lucky to be involved in a program offered by Western in coordination with London Life which offers students the experience and foundation for their future careers.”

Second-year recipients receive a total of $15,000 over three years of the program, with the opportunity for a total of eight months of work experience with London Life. Third-year recipients receive a total of $10,000 for the remaining two years of the program, and a four-month summer work-experience with London Life.

London Life has been helping Canadians meet their financial security needs for more than 130 years and has almost two million clients.

Through The Key to Giving™, Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life contribute to non-profit, charitable and community organizations across the country to address health and wellness, education, social services, arts and culture and civic initiatives.
