2019 Transfer Scholars Selected
The Terry Foundation is proud to announce the selection of our 2019 Transfer Scholar cohort. During the last week of June, 180 candidates interviewed with panels of Terry Scholar Alumni in Houston and Dallas. 72 new Terry Scholars from across the state of Texas were chosen based on their academic achievements, demonstrated leadership, and financial need. These new Terry Scholars will attend 12 Terry-affiliated public universities participating in the Terry Transfer Scholarship Program and will be funded up to six semesters with a minimum award of $14,000 for the 2019-2020 academic year. They will also have the opportunity to utilize a study abroad stipend.
These new Terry Scholars will join the 204 graduating high school seniors who received Terry Scholarships earlier this spring. This 2019 class will join thriving communities of their fellow Scholars, who are already leaving their mark on campus. They will also be part of the ever-expanding Terry Scholar network, comprised of over 5,000 Terry Scholars in various fields of study and industries across the globe.
We are excited for our current Scholars to meet the newest members of our Terry Family, and we look forward to celebrating every milestone and accomplishment with them in the years to come!
In total, the Terry Foundation will award over $27 Million in funding to approximately 1,200 enrolled Terry Scholars during the 2019 – 2020 school year.
