Scholar Development and Fellowships Advising (SDFA) offers assistance to Temple students in all stages of the application process for competitive, merit-based national fellowships.
We provide information on available programs, advice, opportunities for strategic planning and reflection, and guidance for completing a competitive application.
Through outreach to the campus community, support of students, and collaboration with faculty and administration, Fellowships Advising seeks to develop a campus culture that encourages motivated students to pursue these enriching educational opportunities.
Take a look at our Student Profiles to learn about what Temple students have done on their fellowships!
Note: The majority of these opportunities are external awards that fund supplemental undergraduate experiences (summer research, institutes, specialized study abroad) or graduate studies/research. They are typically not intended to cover Temple tuition and fees. For Temple-sponsored awards administered by SDFA, including the Supplemental Academic Scholarships, click here. For other Temple-sponsored awards, see your college's website or click here for links to those sites. Incoming freshmen or transfer students who wish to have more information on their financial packages should speak to Admissions.
Advising and Fellowships 101
To meet with a Fellowships Adviser, use the on-line appointment scheduler.
In advance of your first one-on-one advising appointment, ensure that you:
- attend a Fellowships 101 session (see times at right), or
- attend any other fellowship information session (see times at right), or
- review the Fellowships 101 PowerPoint on your own, or
- stop in during Walk-In Hours for a brief overview
During the academic year, Fellowships Advising holds Walk-In Hours once per week. Advising is limited to a 20-minute appointment and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Check back later in the summer for the fall semester schedule.
