Fern & George Terry Memorial Scholarship Endowment for Study Abroad
A scholarship endowment established by Robert Martin '88, in memory of his grandparents, Fern & George M. Terry - and, in appreciation for the spirit of philanthropy, particularly toward the furtherance of education, that his grandfather demonstrated throughout his life. It will provide support for students in the International Business Program at the College of Business during their study abroad experience. As an undergraduate at James Madison University in the International Business Program, Robert Martin '88 had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain as a junior and continues to view his study abroad as the most significant educational experience he had as a student. Now, with studying abroad for at least one semester a required component of the International Business Program, this Endowment is intended to provide a special resource to facilitate the study abroad experience for students who demonstrate both academic excellence and financial need.
The Fern & George Terry Memorial Scholarship Endowment for Study Abroad will be awarded to outstanding students actively engaged in the study of International Business within the College of Business at James Madison University.
