Entrepreneurship — for students at the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, it’s not a buzz word or the name of a class that can be taken. It’s a passion.

The Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation recognizes that passion each year by awarding $10,000 scholarships to 21 undergraduate and graduate students focusing on entrepreneurship studies at Texas universities. The foundation awards one scholarship a year to a student from each of its 21 participating universities across the state.

In May, Bauer College student Noy Shemer was selected to receive one of those $10,000 scholarships. Shemer is a student in Bauer’s Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship and a UH Tier One Scholar. She graduated from Bellaire Senior High School.

“My time at Bauer has helped me achieve this scholarship by offering me the resources to develop my knowledge and skills not only as a business student, but also for my future as an entrepreneur,” Shemer said.

“Through exclusive networking opportunities and relationship building with students, faculty, and business professionals, I have been able to grow as a student and as a leader. I am confident that I will graduate Bauer standing motivated and prepared to successfully navigate the business world,” she added.

The Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of outstanding Texas business leaders that foster entrepreneurial spirit and community leadership. Scholarships are awarded to outstanding business students who display the same entrepreneurial drive and leadership spirit.
