Heather and Jack Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Business
The Heather and Jack Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Business was established by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System on March 19, 2013, to benefit The University of Texas McCombs School of Business. Gift funds were provided by Mr. John Patrick Nelson and Ms. Heather Berry Nelson.
Jack and Heather Nelson of Austin have earned four UT degrees between them. They realize how much of their professional and personal lives they owe to UT and to the McCombs School in particular, and they gave an endowment to UT to reflect their gratitude.
The Heather and Jack Nelson Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Business will create opportunities for students who otherwise might not be able to afford college.
Jack said he might never had selected UT without being awarded a scholarship, and as the college recruitment process becomes even more competitive, he said he knows how vital a role scholarships play in being able to bring the best students to UT.
