YSU Students Awarded Risk Management Scholarships

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Two Youngstown State University students have been awarded scholarships by the Risk Management Association Foundation.

Dylan Anders, a junior finance and marketing major, and Steven Jefferies, a senior in finance accounting, were awarded the $2,000 renewable RMA Foundation Scholarship, which was given to 88 “promising candidates who demonstrated exceptional academic achievement and commitment to the financial services industry.”

Anders recently finished an internship with Cortland Bank’s risk management and security department, where he helped with branch audits and writing policies and procedures. He also serves as the vice president for financial affairs of the Student Government Association at YSU, as a member of Williamson College of Business Administration’s student conduct board, as a board member of the Vienna Historical Society and on the Fowler Volunteer Fire Department’s social committee.

Jeffries has worked as an intern at Treloar & Heisel in New Castle, Pa., where he worked with the wealth management team. As an intern, he also worked on integrated audits at JP Morgan Chase in New York, on the financial reporting team at Progressive Insurance and as a data analyst with Dominion East Ohio. As a member of Beta Gamma Sigma, he competed at the BGS Global Leadership Summit in September. Jeffries was an offensive lineman for the YSU football team from 2014 to 2016 before stepping down to pursue internships.

The Risk Management Association is a nonprofit professional organization “whose sole purpose is to advance the use of sound risk management principles in the financial services industry.” The association has 2,500 institutional members representing 18,000 individuals in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.
