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 stipend is $12,500 per year and is renewable for up to three years of undergraduate 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.
