Twenty four insurance and risk management students at five Texas universities were recently awarded 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, the ICT reported.
Since the program began in 2002, the Insurance Council of Texas Education Foundation has awarded $681,000 to 329 insurance and risk management students at 10 Texas universities.
“We not only want to reward these excellent scholars, but we want to find them jobs in the insurance industry,” said Tony Gonzalez, president of the ICT Education Foundation.
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, and company and individual donations, fund the ICT scholarships and academic awards.
Scholarship recipients at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin under Professor Jesus Pedre are Nora Delgado, Angela Gallimore and Tosa Nixon.
