Temple University encourages its students to apply early for optimum financial aid consideration. This includes not only applying for admissions early, but also submitting the FAFSA form for need-based aid consideration. Financial aid based on need will be awarded to students in various forms. Students may be eligible for scholarships, various types of grants including institutional, PA state grants, and federal grants, federal student and parent loans, and federal work-study and/or summer federal work-study programs. Additional financial assistance can be found with specific centers and schools offering their own scholarships. Temple University is home to the Supplemental Academic Scholarship (SAS) Program which provides awards to students based on financial need. In order for students to be considered, there is a Supplemental Academic Scholarship Common Application. There are various eligibility requirements depending upon the award and most are renewable when students fill out the SAS Renewal Application.
