    Jason Schoenagle Scholarship
    (Summer semester, FMA students only)

    Jason Schoenagle
     
    Temple's undergraduate program enabled Jason Schoenagle  to develop the creative and technical skills needed to pursue his interest in film, and soon after graduation he moved to Los Angeles to start his career.
     
    He found employment quickly in a competitive industry and advanced at a fast pace, receiving high praise and accolades from his supervisors and colleagues.  
     
    Jason created a huge network of colleagues and friends and was very enthusiastic about his work. We have created the Jason Schoenagle Scholarship Fund to honor undergraduate students who excel academically and who have passion for the Film and Media Arts, as Jason did.
     

    Additional Scholarships

    Temple Merit Scholarship Summer Educational Enhancement Stipends of up to $4,000 are awarded to honors students to advance academic goals over the summer. (These awards are not determined by FMA Study Away).
