About the Scholarship Sponsor:
Temple University is a research institution that can trace its history back to the year 1884 and can be found in the city of Philadelphia. Russell Conwell, a minister in Philadelphia, took a group of young working men under his wing and began instructing them in night classes. In 1888, Conwell established what became known as “The Temple College.” His vision for the institution was to make educational opportunities available to students of all backgrounds and levels of motivation, regardless of the family’s financial situation. After years of operating as a private establishment, in 1965 it was given the status of a “state-related institution.” More than 35,000 students at Temple University continue to live by the university’s official motto, which is “Perseverantia Vincit,” which translates to “Perseverance Conquers.”
The university extends its reach across urban and suburban Philadelphia, as well as to Rome and Japan, and comprises a total of nine campuses. The primary campus is located in the middle of Philadelphia, which is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania as well as the fifth largest in the United States. Temple University has long been recognized as having one of the most ethnically diverse student bodies of any university in the United States.
Because it is one of the largest universities in the United States in terms of the combined number of students educated in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, podiatry, and law, Temple University has a well-deserved reputation for being a pioneer in professional education. The Temple University School of Medicine uses the Temple University Hospital, which is a teaching hospital with 571 beds, as its primary clinical training location. Famous graduates of Temple University include comedian and actor Kevin Hart, singer Jill Scott, musicians Daryl Hall and John Oates, and Shirley J. Tilghman, who formerly served as president of Princeton University.
The “T” of Temple University serves as the institution’s insignia. In 1983, students in the university’s Tyler School of Art came up with the design for the school’s logo. The owl was chosen as Temple University’s mascot to honor the institution’s humble beginnings as a night school for bright and driven young adults. Hooter the Owl is known to show up at sporting events like football and basketball games, as well as events for alumni. At Temple University athletic events, the most devoted fans of the Owls are known as “the Cherry Crusade.” This group is comprised of students who paint themselves in Temple colors and lead cheers during games.
