The Tyler School of Art is committed to assisting a diverse and talented student body with the cost of its education. Student scholarships shape the future of artistic vision and creative activity in the world around us and serve as a powerful tool in attracting the best and brightest students. Offering support to students with need, this important fund makes a Tyler education possible for many deserving students. Gifts in any amount are gratefully welcomed. 

Program Support

Special opportunities for visiting artists, exhibits, and departmental initiatives crucial to Tyler students’ education are just a few examples of programming made possible by individual gifts. The Tyler School of Art also engages in work that builds upon our outreach to the Temple University community, to the local neighborhoods and to other cultural organizations.

Whatever your specific interest, you have the ability to make a difference by supporting specific Tyler School of Art programs or departments.

Naming Opportunities

In January 2009, Tyler opened the doors on a new 255,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. This new building affords naming opportunities for instructional and creative studios, galleries, workshops, exhibition space and departments.

Gifts that bear your name or the name of a loved one, former professor, student or family member offer a lasting impact on the school. Your gift may purchase essential equipment, furnishings, and technology for studios, galleries, auditoria, and classrooms. Students and faculty are empowered to achieve their best when working in an environment best suited for their purposes. You can help to ensure that Tyler School of Art facilities are perfectly suited, continuing to support the goals of excellence.

Gift Planning

Your gift is the key to providing educational opportunity for talented students, regardless of their means, which is at the heart of Temple University’s mission. 

Planned giving can address your own financial needs while enabling you to leave a powerful legacy at Temple University. With a little planning and creativity, your assets can be used for your personal benefit, while providing for the future of the Tyler School of Art and its students.

Many of Tyler School of Art’s scholarships and programs receive funding through the generous support of individuals who have established planned gifts. Their desire to make an impact and envision the future enables Temple to continue providing its students with access to an education of exceptional quality.
