Terry Foundation Scholarships

First-Time Freshman


Above and Beyond

Unlike with most other educational aid programs, Terry Foundation Scholarships are not awarded based solely on financial need, test scores, or grade point average. Instead, students must also exhibit a well-rounded personality, be driven to succeed, and have a history of community leadership.

Becoming a Terry Scholar is an honor and a privilege, and the Terry Foundation expects students to be active members of the UTA community.  Terry Scholars are challenged to achieve their highest potential in SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, and SERVICE - to their university, the State of Texas, and the world.  United by their common excellence and motivated by their pledge to give back to the Foundation, Scholars build their own COMMUNITY of fellowship and mutual respect on campus and as part of the ever-expanding network of Terry Scholar Alumni.  These core values serve as the pillars of the Terry Scholarship Program: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Community.
