Terry Foundation Scholarships
Terry Foundation: Helping Students Help ThemselvesTerry Foundation: Helping Students Help Themselves

As of May 2020, the Terry Foundation’s Board of Directors has determined that we will not offer any new Transfer Scholarships. While we deeply regret having to take this action, it is a necessary step to ensure that the Foundation may continue awarding scholarships into perpetuity.  


The Terry Foundation Scholarship Program provides scholarships for Texas residents to support their goals of earning a college degree. The Terry Foundation supports students who demonstrate leadership, academic achievement, and financial need. The University of Texas at Arlington has been a proud partner with the Terry Foundation since 2015. For more information on the Terry Scholarship at UTA, check out this cool infographic.

The Traditional Terry Scholarship program is for incoming freshman students.  Through this program, taking into account other scholarships and grants, the Terry Scholarship covers the full cost of tuition, fees, books, and on-campus living expenses. It also provides an opportunity for an additional stipend to support study abroad. 

The Traditional Terry Scholarship application is now closed!!!  Deadline for applications was January 14, 2021

UTA will review all Traditional Applications and nominate 26 incoming freshman for the Terry Scholarship. All nominees will interview with the Terry Foundation. From these nominees, the Terry Foundation will award scholarships for the next academic year.
