Help Endow the Texas Terp Scholarship

Support students from the state of Texas. Click HERE to donate to the Texas Terp Scholarship Fund, established by a spirited group of alumni throughout Texas, which awards $2,000 every year for the next five years to one University of Maryland student from the state of Texas who is in need of financial aid. With the financial support of other alumni, this scholarship can become endowed and awarded in perpetuity as long as there is at least one student from the state of Texas who demonstrates financial need. In order for this scholarship to become endowed, the combined contributions over the next six years must amount to a minimum of $25,000. On the Make a Gift page, under Gift Designation, enter Texas under Search for a fund and then select Texas Terp Scholarship Fund.

The first ever recipient of the Texas Terp Scholarship is Donald Park from Allen, Texas. Donald is a sophomore majoring in Engineering with a 3.0 GPA and a significant financial need.
