Texas McCombs to Offer MBA Scholarships for Entrepreneurs

Funds will allow students to pursue startup ventures while doing their MBA

Next year, the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business will offer two scholarships for MBA students who are interested in entrepreneurship.

The new scholarships are valued at 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, and consideration for a post-graduate position.

The scholarships will be awarded to winners of a startup pitch competition, which will be held in February. Applications to compete in the competition are currently open; the application process closes on January 10th.
