Terry Foundation Transfer Scholarships

In 2013, the Terry Foundation expanded its program at UT Dallas to include Transfer/Non-Traditional students. The Terry Transfer Scholarship amount will vary for each student, however the average amount one can expect to receive is $16,900.00 per year. The scholarship is renewable for up to three years of undergraduate/graduate study subject to satisfactory compliance with the Foundation's academic and other requirements. The selection criteria include academic achievement, demonstrated leadership and family income. A student does not have to qualify for need-based aid in order to receive the scholarship.
