Twenty insurance and risk management students at five Texas universities were recently awarded a total of $23,000 in academic scholarships from the Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) Education Foundation.
The students attend Huston-Tillotson University, Texas Southern University, the University of Texas Pan American, the University of Texas at San Antonio and the University of Houston Downtown.
Since the program began in 2002, the Insurance Council of Texas Education Foundation has awarded approximately $600,000 to 283 insurance and risk management students at 10 Texas universities.

Each year, 100 percent of the Mid-Year Symposium sponsorships, company and individual donations go toward the ICT scholarships and academic funding.

The ICT scholarship recipient at Texas Southern University was Tashina Taylor.
