Dyamond Taylor

The Terry Scholars program does not only give you a scholarship to pay for your education. It has helped me get through college with less worries given the support from all the scholars and alumni, and has made me feel right at home as a transfer student.

Terry is more than just a scholarship, it is a family. You are able to fully achieve your goals because you have a group of people to support you.

Mariah Razo

The program has given me more than financial support. It's allowed me the time to focus solely on my classes, extracurriculars and all aspects of the college experience in a way that I could have never imagined.

Keeping the Scholarship

In order to keep the Terry Scholarship in effect, and in addition to any other requirements that the university may impose, a Scholar must:

  1. Maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 and a grade point average for each semester of at least 2.0.*
  2. Write and submit an acceptable annual self-evaluation by the required deadline.
  3. Attend the functions sponsored by The Terry Foundation which include orientation, the Fall banquet and the Spring picnic.
  4. Comply with the rules prescribed by the university and the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

*If a Scholar’s cumulative grade point average drops below the 2.5 required minimum, the student will be placed on probation for one additional semester and given the opportunity to bring the grade point average back into compliance. If at the end of the probationary period the cumulative grade point average is still below 2.5, the Scholar will be terminated from the program.
