SYNCIS Sponsors College Scholarships for Students Who Lost a Parent Without Life Insurance

Two $5,000 Scholarships Awarded During Life Insurance Awareness Month

Syncis Insurance Solutions, LLC (SYNCIS) has once again awarded two $5,000 college scholarships through Life Happens and its annual Life Lessons Scholarship Program to aid the financial burden of students who have lost a parent without life insurance. Each qualified applicant submitted either a 500-word essay or a three-minute video discussing how the death of a parent or guardian financially affected the student’s life.

The scholarships are part of September’s Life Insurance Awareness Month, designed to help educate individuals on the importance and benefits of life insurance.

The recipients of the 2023 scholarships are Christopher Johnson from Texas and Taylor Pitts from New Jersey.

“We’re excited to be awarding two incredible students with scholarships to help them reach their dreams. Unfortunately, Christopher and Taylor’s story is all too common – there are countless families around the country who have gone through the same thing. That’s why we need to keep spreading the word about the importance of life insurance,” said John Kim, Co-Founder of SYNCIS.

SYNCIS has made a multi-year commitment to fund scholarships through the Life Lessons Scholarship Program. Each year, SYNCIS Associates review and vote on scholarship applications.
