Welcome to Terry Scholars®

Who Are the Scholars?

Howard and Nancy Terry created the Terry Foundation® to help young people help themselves. Their desire to invest in Texas students was born of their belief that a university – like the state it represents – is only as good as the educated citizens it produces. The legacy of Howard and Nancy Terry lives on in the thousands of Scholars who bear their name and exemplify the Four Pillars of the Terry Scholarship Program every day: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Community.

To date, the Terry Foundation has funded a total of 348 Terry Scholars attending UTSA since 2006. UTSA currently houses 46 active Terry Scholars for the Fall of 2022!
