The YBN is a committee of brokers across the province who are under the age of 40. Part of their mission is to provide students with information on the benefits of joining the insurance industry, and in turn recruit students to join the insurance field. The YBN is a committee of the Insurance Brokers Association of Nova Scotia (IBANS).
The YBN Bursary can be applied towards Fundamentals of Insurance course, which is offered by IBANS (additional information can be found here - Fundamentals of Insurance ). The bursary is part of a larger strategy aimed at attracting young professionals to our industry.
The Bursary will be awarded annually and the YBN can choose to award multiple bursaries at once. The funds are collected through fundraising at YBN sponsored events.
The YBN bursary has been extended to anyone interested in a career as an insurance broker. The bursary covers the cost of the course registration, textbooks and exam fee.
The applicants must submit an application to IBANS Professional Development Coordinator. Applications are reviewed by the YBN Committee, who selects a recipient based on the established criteria. The bursary is directly applied to the recipient’s Fundamentals of Insurance course.
The YBN would like the opportunity to personally meet the selected recipient and take a photo which will be published in our national publication – The Atlantic Broker Magazine.
