TEF brings the community together to maximize student success. One of the primary goals of the Temple Education Foundation is to encourage students to attend post-secondary schools including four year universities, community colleges, vocational, and trade schools. Each year we award thousands of dollars in scholarships to Temple High School Students to help them continue their education.
