Merit Scholarships

Temple awards merit scholarships to international students with strong academic records. These scholarships range from $2,000 to full tuition. The availability of funding and the size, quality and characteristics of the overall applicant pool will determine the number and value of merit scholarships offered.

Students are automatically considered for merit scholarships upon applying to Temple—a separate application is not needed. Submit your application for admission and all supporting documents by the application deadlines.

#WhyUS Campaign and Scholarship

Temple has introduced the #WhyUS campaign and scholarships to help ensure all international students know that the U.S. is one of the most desirable places in the world to study.

These scholarships, which range from $2,000 to $10,000 for up to four consecutive years (four years for first-year students and two years for transfer students), will be awarded for the best responses to our creative prompt. Winners will be chosen independent of a prospective student’s academic performance, and scholarships can be combined with other awards already received. Scholarship winners will be announced April 16, 2021.

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered for #WhyUS scholarships, you must 

  • be a Temple applicant (first-year or transfer international student). An international applicant is an individual who holds citizenship in a country outside the United States and who does not also possess U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
  • demonstrate interest in one of the #WhyUS points. Read more about the scholarship and #WhyUS points

#YouAreWelcomeHere Campaign and Scholarship

In 2016, Temple pioneered a nationwide welcome message from U.S. higher education to international students around the world. Through the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship, Temple recognizes international students who demonstrate a vision for enhancing intercultural understanding. Temple was one of the first nine universities to make an initial commitment to the #YouAreWelcomeHere initiative. Every year, we select two first-year students to receive an annual, renewable scholarship of $20,000.

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered for the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship, you must

  • be a first-year international applicant. An international applicant is an individual who holds citizenship in a country outside the United States and who does not also possess U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
  • attend (or have graduated from) a secondary school outside of the U.S.
  • demonstrate interest and personal initiative in activities involving intercultural learning and exchange.
