The Mary Virginia Terry Student Support Fund was established in 2013 to honor the
inspirational leadership of educational and cultural philanthropist Mary Virginia
Terry. The fund annually supports two financial awards for undergraduate business
majors and are presented at the Terry College Professional Women’s Conference.
In 1991, the University of Georgia named the College of Business after alumnus C.
Herman Terry and his wife Mary Virginia in honor of their generous gift to the business
school. A native of Quitman, Georgia, Mrs. Terry’s continued unconditional support,
service, and commitment to both the Terry College and UGA make her a true role model
for future business leaders.
The awards may be utilized for domestic or international travel (including study abroad
programs), books, conference fees, tuition, professional development, and career advancement.
Selection is based on academic achievement, philanthropic/community service, commitment
to advancing the interests of women in business, and leadership qualities.
In order to be considered for selection, candidates must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and
be a Terry College junior or senior. During Fall semester, online application information
and timelines are provided. The Office of Alumni Relations administers these awards.
Open to all Terry majors!
Submission deadline is Friday, September 25, 2021 at 11:59 pm.
