Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Temple College Foundation Scholarship Opportunities Homepage!

The Temple College Foundation seeks to motivate, encourage and reward successful academic endeavors. Our donors have invested their personal wealth to assist students in meeting their goals. Our responsibility to our donors is to ensure that their dollars are going towards investments in successful students. Therefore, all scholarship funds will be distributed after the completion of the semester and when the students have completed all registered courses with no failing grades. This application will determine eligibility for each of the scholarships available through the Foundation. Scholarship recipients are selected according to the donor’s wishes, and will be notified of their award status in July. Any student receiving an award will be eligible for a Leopard Loan in order to help pay for tuition and books. The loan must be repaid out of personal funds if the student doesn’t complete all registered classes with all passing grades.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply to scholarships which require an application, you must sign up for an account using your primary email address. You will then have the opportunity to complete a general application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships.
