An Undergraduate Research Program in Risk and Actuarial Science
The Undergraduate Research Program at Illinois is sponsored by the Society of Actuaries. It is the first such program in the nation that aims to provide actuarial science undergraduate students with an opportunity to perform and disseminate research, develop students’ skills in research methodology, project management, writing, and presentation. Learn more about our research program in the article "Undergraduate Research in Risk and Actuarial Science at the University of Illinois," by Runhuan Feng and Siva Karthik Boddapati, published in Expanding Horizons, May 2018.
This website serves as an online repository, freely available to the general academic and professional actuarial communities, containing the results from students research efforts in a variety of media.
