UTDSOM Investment Corporation is a nonprofit created to provide opportunities for
UT Dallas students to manage an investment fund, whose returns were used to fund scholarships for UTD students.
Bob and Ann Kieschnick provided the initial seed monies for UTDSOM Investment Corporation, which has been and continues to be supplemented by donations from former UTD students and its board members.
Originally, UTDSOM Investment Corporation oversaw two funds: an undergraduate fund, and a graduate fund. Later, it added an energy fund. However, due to changes in its arrangements with UT Dallas, these funds were merged into one fund during Summer, 2020.
This merger has eliminated duplication and made it easier to manage the monies for the benefit of UT Dallas students.
