The Terry Foundation is a Houston-based philanthropic organization that provides scholarships for outstanding Texas students to attend in-state public colleges and universities including the University of Houston. The amount of the Terry scholarship is based on the cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books, room and board, and miscellaneous expenses) and is adjusted individually based on additional sources of financial support. Established in 1986 by Nancy & Howard Terry, the foundation has awarded 4-year scholarships to thousands of graduating high school seniors from all over the state. 

Moreover, beginning with the 2013-2014 academic year, the Terry Foundation has expanded its program to include Transfer/Non-Traditional students at the University of Houston.
