Ann and Ken Newman Scholarship Fund

The Newman Foundation Endowment annually supports outstanding work by early-research, first-year TAMS students. Ken Newman, who leads the Newman Foundation with his wife, Ann, is 1966 graduate of the UNT School of Business.

The fund allows students to participate in a 10-week research program under a faculty mentor. Student recipients can explore their area of interest and gain invaluable skill and experience early in their academic career.
