The 29th Annual ICT/AFACT Property and Casualty Insurance Symposium was held September 1-2, 2021. The Symposium is the largest fundraiser for the ICT Education Foundation and all corporate sponsorships and individual donations earmarked for the foundation go entirely toward supporting scholarships and academic awards to students and nine Texas universities. Our 2021 fundraising goal is $90,000 and through your contribution, you help us achieve this goal. Your generous support is appreciated!

 

 

Since 2002, the Insurance Council of Texas has been awarding scholarships and grants to Texas university students and business schools to enhance their insurance and risk management programs. Formed in 2007 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Education Foundation has awarded over $1.3 million in awards to promote careers in the insurance industry.

 

The 2020 ICT Education Foundation Impact Report highlights the Foundation’s accomplishments and spotlights our efforts to support the next generation of insurance professionals. Click here to read the report.

 

It has been an honor to serve on the Foundation since its inception. Sharing the opportunities found in the industry is great, and helping students with scholarship awards is even more fulfilling. ~ Tony Gonzalez, SVP UPC, President ICT Education Foundation

 


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.


I am pleased to support the ICT Education Foundation for over ten years. Their work, to promote careers in the insurance industry, creating a viable employment pipeline and helping students recognize the opportunities available in this industry is critical. John Stuckemeyer, Counsel State Farm,
ICT Chair of the Board of Directors

 

 

 

Today, the Education Foundation awards scholarships to students at nine Texas universities: Baylor University, St. Mary’s University, Texas Southern University, the University of Houston, University of Houston-Downtown, the University of North Texas, the University of Texas - Dallas, the University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, and the University of Texas-San Antonio.

 

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
