Why Apply for Fellowships? 

Students and alumni who apply for scholarships and fellowships learn that it is not just about the funding. Applying for fellowships: 

  • motivates you to reflect on and articulate your own academic and career path 

  • encourages you to develop and maintain relationships with professors and others in your field 

  • pushes you to learn more about the issues you care about 

  • helps you to write and speak more concisely and precisely 

  • connects you with like-minded Temple students and potentially others from across the country or world 

  • shows you that you can work hard to achieve a goal 

While there is no guarantee that your hard work and strong preparation will lead to your receiving a nationally competitive award, we encourage you to pursue excellence, however you define it. The process may be challenging intellectually, professionally, and personally, but the outcome could be a transformative experience that helps you to define who you want to become and how you are going to make an impact on the world.
