Where to Give

With the ever increasing cost of higher education, student debt continues to rise. State subsidies for schools like Temple University are decreasing every year. Today 50% of a college education is paid by student loans. The average Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (TUSPM) student is estimated to be $160,000 in accumulated educational debt upon graduation.
