The founder of Temple University, Dr. Russell H. Conwell, believed that education should be available to anyone on the basis of their intellectual and personal motivation, regardless of their income. Temple University's Office of Student Financial Services readily assists all Temple students with the financial aid process, as well as, servicing the University balance due statements. Throughout their generosity, Temple University has many different types of scholarships to offer.
The Temple University Broad Street Finish Line Scholarship is offered to undergraduate students with financial need. Preference is given to students who are the first generation in their families to graduate from college/university. Additionally, preference will be given to students from the City of Philadelphia though all students will be considered, including international students. This is renewable for up to eight semesters.
