The McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, together with the Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs (TVL), has created two new scholarships for MBA students interested in entrepreneurship.
The TVL Scholarship is a competitive scholarship that will be awarded each February. The new scholarships are worth more than $174,000 each, which covers $10,000 per year in tuition funds and also includes a $30,000 in-state tuition waiver, a slot in an accelerator program (valued at $74,000) and consideration for a post-graduate position as an Accenture Venture Partner (valued at $50,000).
The scholarships will be awarded to winners of a startup pitch competition, which will be held in conjunction with the Texas Venture Labs Investment Competition (TVLIC) in February. TVL began accepting applications to compete in the competition on October 1st, and the application process closes on January 10, 2014. Semifinalists will be notified on January 13th to participate in a semi-finals/finals weekend on February 14th and 15th.
