ICT Awards Scholarships to 30 University Students
The Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) Education Foundation recently awarded $40,000 in academic scholarships to 30 students studying insurance and risk management at five Texas universities. The students attend the University of Houston Main, the University of Texas at Dallas, the University of Texas at San Antonio, the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the University of Houston Downtown.
Since 2002, ICT has awarded scholarships to more than 570 university students who have considered a career in property and casualty insurance. During this time, the ICT Education Foundation has awarded $1.15 million to students at 12 Texas universities and their insurance and risk management programs.
Tony Gonzalez, president of the ICT Education Foundation, says it remains a collaborative effort between ICT and universities to reward the school’s best and brightest students and help them enter a career in the property and casualty insurance industry. “Our younger generation is the lifeblood of the industry and it will be their ingenuity and hard work that insures our future generation,” said Gonzalez.

ICT scholarship recipients at the University of Texas at Dallas, under director Debra Richardson, were Stephanie White, Sean Kirwan, Alisha Elhassan, Zaarah Abbas, Britten Burchardt, Lydia Bordo, Antony Moyalan and Yasmeen Tayeb.
