In 2011, the first year as a Terry Foundation school, Texas Tech welcomed 16 Terry Scholars, plus two transfer students from other Terry programs. The next year we added 20 to the number, gaining 16 through an interview panel made up of solely students wanting to come to Texas Tech and an additional 4 through a mixed panel with students choosing from several other Terry schools. In 2013 TTU had 32 new freshman scholars, plus 24 transfer scholars. In 2014 TTU will have 36 freshmen and 18 transfer students joining as Terry Scholars.
Program growth like this is unprecedented in the program’s 25 year history. The caliber of student applying at Texas Tech is outstanding. We, at Texas Tech, are thrilled to be a part of the Terry Family.
