"The establishment of the scholarship shows our Board's and our Chapter's commitment to strengthening the bonds that exist between our organization and the academic community in our region."

The ACG Central Texas Scholarship for Finance Studies awards up to four business schools in the Austin-San Antonio corridor that have a Master's degree program in any business discipline. The criteria is participation of the business school in the final round of the Texas ACG Cup competition in the academic year preceding the presentation of the scholarship.
