Kay Cooper Memorial Scholarship

Kay Cooper Memorial Scholarship

Each year the Kay Cooper Memorial CPIA Scholarship is presented at the Florida Council Meeting. It is awarded to a qualified member of NAIW/IAIP to encourage professional development. The scholarship waives the registration fee for the recipient to attend the three CPIA certification classes in Florida.


Kay Cooper, CIC, CPIW, was an active member of NAIW/IAIP in Florida and a strong advocate of continuing education and professional development. Kay passed away in 1986, but before she died, her hard work, determination and professionalism made her a great example for others in the insurance industry.

In 1988, the Kay Cooper Scholarship was established as an annual award by the Professional Insurance Agents of Florida with the cooperation of the NAIW/IAIP to help others pursue their professional goals.


Candidates for the scholarship must:
1. Be a current member of NAIW/IAIP;
2. Have never attended a CPIA class;
3. Have been active in the insurance industry for at least two years (however, a license is not required);
4. Be currently employed in the insurance industry or in insurance education;
5. Have shown a commitment to continuing education and professional development.
