While I suspect you might have an appreciation as to how special this particular award is for our students, I don’t know if you can really appreciate the full extent to which a scholarship can change a student’s life. The money AND the special attention afforded them by the ICT may very well launch their careers. It makes a difference. ~ Dr. Nat Pope, Professor Insurance & Risk Management UNT



Mission Statement

The mission of the Insurance Council of Texas Education Foundation is to promote careers in the P&C insurance industry through scholarships and other financial support to university students registered at Texas universities that offer risk management/insurance programs.
