"While we're pleased the number of Terry Scholars at Texas Tech continues to grow each year, we're also pleased that we are still able to select our scholars in the same way we always have, taking into consideration their leadership abilities and their academic promise, and that we're still able to educate them one scholar at a time," said Jodie Koszegi, scholarship program director.
The Terry Foundation was established in 1986 by Houstonians Howard and Nancy Terry out of a desire to help young people help themselves. The foundation's goal is to strengthen the state of Texas by identifying, developing and supporting Texas high school graduates with high leadership potential. Tech's new class of 32 total members includes six valedictorians; the students have an average SAT score of 1,285 and an average ACT score of 28.
The foundation provides four-year scholarships for Texas residents attending certain universities in the state, including Texas Tech. The scholarship recipients are selected from a competitive pool of applicants who demonstrate leadership, character, scholastic ability and financial need. The award amount varies for each scholar depending on other scholarships awarded.
