TMF Scholarship: Working Towards a Brighter Future
Attorney Terance Madden established the Terance Madden Foundation in 2015 as a non-profit that is dedicated to investing in the youth today to build a stronger tomorrow. The TMF serves to promote higher education primarily by awarding scholarships to deserving college and college-bound students.
Our Mission is to support the educational endeavors of college students in their pursuit of excellence through financial support and community empowerment.
Founder Terance Madden values and stresses the importance of education as a great equalizer towards social development. He understands that a good education gives many the opportunity to become contributing members of society and he is devoted to helping students circumvent financial obstacles to reach and attain their goals.
Therefore, The TMF aims to ensure that deserving college-bound students are not excluded from quality education because of financial needs. The TMF is committed to giving scholarships to graduating seniors and current college students in geographical areas that are experiencing financial deprivation and lack of four-year degrees.
To be eligible for an award, applicants must:
- Reside in or be from Augusta or Atlanta, Georgia
- Be a graduating high school senior or be currently enrolled in an accredited post-secondary degree program
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
Each student applying for a scholarship from The Terance Madden Foundation is required to submit:
- A 500-word essay
- A recent transcript from their educational institution
- Sign and submit a consent form
- A recent high-resolution picture
A selection committee will evaluate the applications and select the winners. The committee will consider:
- Community and/or school service
- Leadership potential
- Academic achievements and records
Applicants will receive confirmation of application submission. Scholarship recipients will be notified via mail or telephone call.
Follow-up: In an effort to ensure all scholarship recipients are matriculating, graduating, and continuing to work towards their goals, The Terance Madden Foundation will be tracking the progress of past and future recipients. This will assist us in evaluating the success of the students and the need for future scholarships.
