Application and deadlines

Temple University offers limited pre-college financial aid primarily based on financial need. To be considered for financial aid, you must complete the financial aid section of the application for your program. There is no separate application for financial aid, and no requests for aid will be considered after the application deadline of April 1, 2023. 

Subject-specific scholarships

If you are applying for aid for the Pre-College Workshops program and you know which workshops you would like to attend, please indicate those workshop choices on your application. Some workshops, such as the Accounting Institute, have full scholarships available for students who qualify.

Alumni and employee discounts

Children and grandchildren of Temple employees and alumni are eligible for a 10% discount on most pre-college programs. To verify your alumni status and claim this discount, please email

Other sources of aid

Students who are in need of aid are also encouraged to research and apply for different organizations that provide aid to high school/pre-college students. Some organizations that may be able to assist include the Charles E. Ellis Trust for Girls (Philadelphia students only) and Wishbone. You may also consider asking your high school counselor if they are aware of any other sources of aid in your area. Community organizations may also provide scholarships to their local students. It is important to be proactive and start your aid search very early.
