Undergraduate Financial Aid and Scholarships

Temple University founder Dr. Russell H. Conwell believed that education should be available to anyone on the basis of their intellectual and personal motivation, regardless of their income. Here are a few ways we honor that vision today.

  • Sixty-nine percent of first-year Temple students receive need-based aid. 
  • More than half of Temple students received merit-based scholarship offers in recent years. 
  • Temple students receive over $100 million in scholarships annually.

Cost should never be a barrier to preventing eager learners from access to higher education. At the College of Liberal Arts, we strive to make a college degree affordable for all qualified applicants.
