The Alliant Insurance Foundation uses a multifaceted approach that includes sponsoring scholarships and grants, outreach, educational programs, community investment, and coordinating efforts with non-profits that share our mission of broadening access to career opportunities in the risk management and insurance industries.

Alliant, in collaboration with Southern University and A&M College and the Louisiana Department of Insurance, has launched a bold diversity initiative focused on accelerating the growth of Black professionals in the insurance industry. The initiative includes:


  • A Risk Management and Insurance degree program at Southern University, which will build upon the Louisiana Department of Insurance’s Risk Management and Insurance concentration program in SU’s College of Business. This will be the first such program at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU).

Alliant Insurance Foundation Fellows offers underrepresented undergraduate students the opportunity for an in-depth career experience for up to three summers. The program pays students both a competitive hourly wage as well as housing and living expenses. Alliant Fellows are provided with the opportunity to explore different parts of the insurance industry, shadow insurance professionals, receive 1:1 mentorship and emerge from the program as developing leaders with the expertise to be successful in the insurance industry. 

Alliant Insurance Foundation Scholars offers underrepresented postgraduate students the opportunity to complete specialized insurance certifications on a flexible schedule. During their course of study, the foundation will pay for the student’s certification and study expenses, a competitive hourly wage, and other living expenses. AIF Scholars are partnered with a mentor and complete a capstone project, in addition to their studies.
