September 4, 2013 – Ted Schroeder, director of the Center for Risk Management Education and Research (CRMER), has announced the call for CRMER Student Fellows. Applications are due by October 4. The new class will begin the program January 2014.

“We want talented students, who will be engaged and are interested in risk management,” Schroeder said. “These students should have approximately 3 semesters left in their studies at Kansas State University.”

This opportunity is open to students majoring in Agricultural Economics, Agribusiness, Finance, Industrial Engineering, or other departments partnering with CRMER (others will be considered on an individual basis). Further details regarding qualification requirements are in the announcement.

Schroeder provides a summary of what the current class of 9 students have accomplished during the past year.

  • We made visits last spring to Aon, Koch Industries, CME Group, Frontier Farm Credit and had numerous guest lectures from a variety of industry affiliated risk management folks (learn more at our blog site at
  • All Student Fellows completed risk management internships and/or graduate risk research this past summer.
  • Student fellows launch their industry partner risk management research projects this week (we have three very interesting projects the students are working on, each with a different industry partner and faculty mentor).

Student Fellows and partners of the Center are looking forward to the upcoming events and opportunities for this fall semester and beyond.

Interested students are welcome to submit materials as requested in the announcement, or any questions, to Schroeder at by October 4, 2013.
