External Scholarships and Fellowships
External scholarships and fellowships are awarded by a funding body that is outside of Temple University. While there may be an internal deadline for the award and we may have to submit your application on your behalf, the award will ultimately be decided by a committee external to Temple University, and you will be competing against non-Temple applicants from the region, the country or the world. While these are highly competitive awards, Temple students can and do win them! We are here to help you understand the process and develop a competitive application package.
