Twenty-two insurance and risk management students at four Texas universities were recently awarded a total of $40,000 in academic scholarships from the Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) Education Foundation. The students attend St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Baylor University in Waco, the University of North Texas in Denton and the University of Texas at Austin.
Each student received a scholarship as well as an invitation to attend ICT’s annual Mid-Year Symposium in Austin where approximately 300 insurance industry leaders gather to hear an update on the Texas marketplace. Each year, 100 percent of the Mid-Year Symposium sponsorships, company and individual donations go toward the ICT scholarships and school funding.
