Scholarships can be a great way to help pay for your education. They require some
action on your part, usually an application or some other requirement, but are well
worth the effort!
Scholarships range in amounts and how they are awarded, some are based on academic merit, others on financial need, and some have different stipulations that are spelled out in the scholarship application.
My grandfather taught me the benefits of hard work and putting your all into something that will benefit the community and make the world a better place. I feel like creating a scholarship like this is a step in that direction.”

Terra State offers scholarship options through the Terra College Foundation, our Workforce Demand Scholarship and Short-Term Certificate scholarships.
New this year, students can now apply for the Roy W. Klay Scholars Program, the College’s first full academic scholarship, through the Terra College Foundation. This scholarship will support two tuition and general fees scholarships for one nontraditional and one traditional student at Terra State. This award was established by Mr. Klay Huddleston, grandson of founding President Emeritus Roy W. Klay, and his family.
