Temple University PECO Scholars Program

The PECO Scholars Program provides scholarship support for students who demonstrate a high degree of academic achievement and potential, but whose total financial need is left unmet by federal, state, and private grants, sholarship aid and loans. The Program is open to all matriculating, full-time undergraduate students in their junior or senior year. Per PECO's preferences, awardees must be permanent residents of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties, completing a bachelor's degree in designated major*, and have achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or greater.

The PECO Scholars Program is administered by the Russell Conwell Center (RCC) through its Supplemental Academic Scholarship (SAS) Program. The SAS Program provides scholarships to undergraduate students who have demonstrated academic achievement, campus or community service, and the persistence in achieving despite obstacles and challenges and financial need. The RCC is a comprehensive academic and learning center that enables students to maximize their university experience, achieve academic success, enhance or develop strong leadership skills, and prepare for future careers.

The PECO Scholars Program was established in the 2010 - 2011 academic year and provides approximately 12-15 students with scholarships in the range $1,000 - $2,000 annually. PECO Scholars are recognized at an annual Reception attended by PECO and University representatives, the PECO Scholars, and their families.

*All FOX School of Business and Management undergraduate majors are eligible as well as select majors in the College of Liberal Arts including Community and Regional Planning, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography and Urban Studies, Horticulture, Landscape Architecture, and Mathematical Economics.
