History of the Scholarship
Scholars were first awarded at UT Austin and Texas A&M in 1987. Subsequent expansion included University of Houston and Texas State – San Marcos in 2004 and UT Dallas and UT San Antonio in 2006. University of North Texas and Texas Tech were added in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Their primary goal is to aid Texas high school graduates who show promise of future leadership distinction and to provide ample funding to students who might not otherwise be able to attend college.
Scholarships at Texas Tech
In 2011, the first year as a Terry Foundation school, Texas Tech welcomed 16 Terry Scholars, plus two transfer students from other Terry programs. The next year we added 20 to the number, gaining 16 through solid Texas Tech interview panel and an additional 4 through a mixed panel versus other Terry schools. In 2013 there are 32 new freshman scholars, plus 24 of transfer scholars.
Program growth like this is unheard of in the programs 25 year history. The caliber of student applying at Texas Tech is outstanding. We, at Texas Tech, are thrilled to be a part of the Terry Family.
