UTA welcomes inaugural class of Terry Scholars

Posted on

I’m proud to welcome 20 student leaders into UTA’s charter class of Terry Foundation Scholars! These students, who have demonstrated strong academic ability, received full-four year scholarships. The Terry Foundation, established by Houston philanthropists Howard and Nancy Terry, is the largest private source of scholarships in Texas.

This funding from the Terry Foundation will support the next generation of leaders, innovators, artists and more at UT Arlington. The Terry Scholars – or “Terrys” as they call themselves – live together on campus and participate in special programming, benefiting from the continuous support from the Foundation and its far-reaching alumni network.
