The Houston-based Terry Foundation scholarship program provides four-year scholarships for Texas residents attending Texas Tech and a dozen other universities in the state. Terry Scholars are selected from a highly competitive applicant pool of incoming freshmen who demonstrate exceptional leadership, character, financial need and scholastic ability.
Program officials note that Terry Scholars are selected from a competitive applicant pool of incoming freshmen and non-traditional, transfer students from Texas community colleges or universities who are working toward their first bachelor's degree. Those selected demonstrate exceptional leadership, character, financial need and scholastic ability.
The Terry Foundation was established in 1986 by Houstonians Howard and Nancy Terry from 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 and providing them with scholarships to attend participating universities.
