Four new corporate scholarships available for high-performing Fox MIS students

Management Information Systems (MIS) majors at Temple University’s Fox School of Business now have four more opportunities to receive tuition scholarships thanks to donations from some of the world’s largest companies.

Merck, Lockheed Martin, Campbell Soup Co. and Walmart – all members of the Fox School’s Institute for Business and Information Technology (IBIT) – have each donated an annual $5,000 scholarship to be awarded to new and continuing high-performing MIS majors who demonstrate exceptional potential.

A call for applications, including letters of recommendation, will be made in late February or early March 2014. Recipients will be selected by the Institute for Business and Information Technology and MIS Department and recognized by school and corporate leaders at the annual IT Awards Reception in mid-April.

These companies recognize the caliber of our program and its students and recognize them for their dedication and achievement. We thank our partners for their continued collaboration and generosity in supporting our students.
