Support Our Veterans
The Dr. Alfred M. Sellers Veterans Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Dr. Alfred Sellers, a decorated Army veteran of WWII and the Battle of the Bulge, whose studies at Temple were disrupted by the war. Dr. Sellers served with a combat engineering unit before becoming a medical corpsman in the Army’s 4th Armored Division, where he earned a bronze star for valor. A practicing physician for 55 years, Temple formally awarded Dr. Sellers his bachelor’s degree in 2012.
The scholarship is awarded to veterans returning to the College of Liberal Arts to pursue an undergraduate degree. Support this fund and learn more about Dr. Sellers’ extraordinary life.
Support Graduate Students
The Stephen Couvillion Scholarship honors Stephen’s memory and his passion for humanity. Founded by his friends and family, the scholarship is awarded annually to outstanding students entering the graduate program in African American studies. Preference is given to those returning to graduate study after an absence of at least five years.
A New Fund to Support Students
The 57 Cent Fund honors the legacy of Temple University founder Russell Conwell. In his moving sermon, “The History of Fifty-Seven Cents,” Conwell memorialized Hattie May Wiatt, a child whose dying contribution of 57 cents toward the building of a new Sunday school inspired thousands of dollars in subsequent donations and led to the construction of the Baptist Temple. The 57 Cent Fund carries on the tradition of helping students maintain critical access to education. The fund supports students facing unforeseen and catastrophic life events.
Shape Temple's Future
The Owl alumni network is strong and always growing because our graduates maintain close relationships with their alma mater. They devote their time and talent to Temple. They volunteer, develop lasting relationships, promote diversity and are actively involved in shaping Temple’s future.
That’s because we educate pioneers. We teach critical thinking skills, creativity and confidence that prepares students for careers—and meaningful lives—and helps them thoughtfully take part in our alumni association, donate and volunteer at the university.
