The Percy S. Lorie Scholarship is sponsored by the Kansas City Chapter of CPCU and is intended to foster insurance education at the college level.   Two scholarships are awarded annually. To be eligible, the student must have completed at least 60 hours of college level classes, major in insurance or insurance related field of study and have some insurance-specific work experience.   

Percy S Lorie started his career as an insurance agent in Kansas City.  He was one of the early completers of the CPCU curriculum, having attained his designation in 1952.  Mr. Lorie is most remembered for helping to form the Kansas City CPCU Chapter and in playing an instrumental part in the Chapter's continuing education activities. For many years he was responsible for administering and teaching insurance courses in the Kansas City area.  From these early beginnings, the Chapter's education program has grown and prospered.

Thousands of insurance professionals in the Kansas City area have benefited from his work.  Percy Lorie had a life long commitment to share knowledge and encourage others in their studies.  In honor of his visionary work in insurance education, the Kansas City Chapter of CPCU established the Percy S. Lorie Scholarship in 1994.

The CPCU-Harry J. Loman Foundation provides matching scholarship funds to CPCU Society Chapters that establish scholarship programs.  The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that works with the CPCU Society and others in the support and encouragement of research, study, publications, career pursuit, and public and professional education in the fields of insurance, risk and risk bearing.  Founded in 1961 by the CPCU Society, the Foundation was named for Harry J. Loman, Ph.D., founder of the CPCU movement.  Dr. Loman was the first dean of the American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters, and later served as president of the American Institute.
