Sylvia V. Terry Scholarship


The Ridley Family of Scholarship Funds is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural Sylvia V. Terry Scholarship competition. Named for retired OAAA Dean Sylvia Terry, the scholarship recognizes the scholastic and community achievements of black or African-American students at UVa and provides two years of support at $12,500 annually. Ideal applicants are rising third year students with strong grades, leadership activities, and community service. Because of Dean Terry’s pivotal role in creating the Peer Advisor program, preference will be given to academically strong candidates with significant experience as mentors.
