Endowments

In order to faciliate future scholarship awards, the chapter, at its board's discrection, designates a portion of its profits each year for scholarship endowments.  The fund will be invested and administered within the established fiduciary policy of The Texas Exes, and the Association’s Investment Committee will set the percentage of income to be awarded to recipients each year. The Investment Committee sets administrative fees that are paid to the money managers, investment consultants and the Association. The fees are based on the market value of the fund and are taken from the fund each year. Any earnings not awarded to the recipients each year will be returned to the fund to provide for fund growth.

 

If you have any questions or wish to add anything extra to your application, please contact our scholarship chair at scholarships@newyorktexasexes.org.
