About the Foundation

During Teresa Maness’ life she invested untold hours and resources in an
attempt to provide a better world for the abused and neglected children of
Montgomery County and the surrounding counties. Teresa’s wish was that
she could continue to assist under privileged children in death as she did in
life. With this objective in mind, Teresa’s Last Will and Testament provided
that a trust should be established for “educational expenses of deserving
applicants “.

The Teresa Maness Educational Foundation has been established to carry
out Teresa’s wishes. The Foundation’s objective is to provide scholarships
for those who, though qualified and motivated to attain a higher education,
do not have the resources to do so. The qualified applicant will have:

  1. graduated from high school in Montgomery County or one of the
    counties contiguous to Montgomery County;
  2. a high school record which reflects their ability to excel academically;
  3. taken the initiative to apply and be accepted to an institution of
    higher learning;
  4. inadequate financial resources to attend the institution of higher
    learning to which they have been accepted;
  5. taken the initiative to make application for educational funds through
    scholarships or student grants and loans;
  6. explored employment opportunities available to them during the
    course of their higher education;
  7. prepared a budget of the projected costs and expenses of their
    education weighed against the funds (scholarships, loans, grants,
    family assistance, income from part time employment) available to
    them.

It is believed that any student who has these attributes is a candidate
worthy to receive a scholarship in the sum of the resources required but
unavailable to the student from other sources.
