HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., July 5, 2023/PRNewswire/ — Confie, the largest personal lines distributor in the US, is thrilled to announce it has expanded the number of recipients and scholarship money awarded for the 2023-24 academic year.
In only its second year, the Confie Enablement Fund has awarded $70,000 in support of the educational advancement of 15 deserving employees or their dependents, up from $30,000 and 6 awardees the previous year. The fund is a collaboration with the Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) and the scholarship program is administered through Scholarship America.
“Education has always been a key element of why Confie excels – both internally with our team and externally with our customers,” said Cesar Soriano, CEO. “The Confie Enablement Fund ensures that education continues to be at the foundation of our winning culture.”
The goal for all of these scholars is to continue their higher education pursuits and focus on their career aspirations with less stress from financing their education.
Confie is highly committed to the communities it serves, and recipients this year represent ten different cities in the US and Mexico. Awardees also highlight a diverse range of educational pursuits, ranging from design to child psychology to environmental engineering.
Each of the 15 deserving scholars shares a common interest with Confie: helping others. The employees and their dependents are living examples of the Confie Enablement Fund’s goal for promoting higher education.
The scholarships were independently judged and awarded by Scholarship America. No personnel representing Confie or OCCF have any part in the selection. Among the recipients, those seeking a two-year degree receive $2,500, while those seeking a four-year degree are awarded $5,000.
