Since 1987, more than 5,000 Scholars have entered the Terry Scholarship Programs. Their lives and the lives of their families have forever been changed because of the opportunity to receive an education and graduate without the burden of excessive debt.
Mr. and Mrs. Terry requested that Scholars give back to the Foundation through their time and resources to ensure a strong Terry family. Terry Scholar Alumni give back to the Foundation in a number of ways.
Terry Year of Service
The 2017 – 2018 School year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Terry Scholarship. No matter where they live, Terry Scholars can honor the Terry Legacy and celebrate the growth of our Terry Family by giving back to their communities. We encourage everyone to share their stories of service and to add their service hours to our cumulative total. At the end of June 2018, the Foundation will share the total number of reported service hours for the year.
Service on Terry Scholarship Interview Panels.
Alumni indicate their availability for interviews each fall, and the Foundation extends formal panelist invitations in late January or early February. If you would like to be contacted regarding interviews, please keep your contact information updated in the Terry Portal.
Participation in and support of Terry Scholar Alumni Association chapter activities.
Join your local chapter for socials, service projects, activities with current Terry Scholars, and more.
Mentorship of current Scholars or Alumni via the Terry Assistance Program (TAP).
Sharing job or internship opportunities with fellow Terrys.
The Foundation emails a list of job opportunities at least once per month.
Donations to the endowment.
The Foundation does not expect financial contributions from Terry Alumni, but we respect and appreciate that some may choose to donate in honor of the gift they were given when they received the scholarship.
