Awards are granted without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants in the U.S. must meet the following criteria:

Applicants outside of the U.S. must meet the following criteria:

All applicants must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be high school seniors/students in their final year of upper secondary school or graduates or current college/university undergraduates
  • Plan to enroll in full-time or half-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical college (or equivalent) for the entire upcoming academic year
  • Be pursuing a degree in a STEM-related field such as Science (natural sciences, including biology, physics, chemistry), Technology, Engineering, and Math related majors (including statistics, data science, etc.)
  • Reside in a country with a Teradata location (see list of eligible countries tab)

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Statement on overcoming hardship

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Teradata Corporation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to six (6) awards will be granted.

Assuming there are qualified applicants, recipients will be selected from each of Teradata’s regions as follows:

  • AMERICAS: two (2) recipients
  • EMEA: two (2) recipient
  • APJ: two (2) recipient

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance and continuation of the program by Teradata Corporation.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in April.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Teradata Corporation. Payment is made in one installment in early August. Award payments will be issued in U.S. currency.
