Luv Sodha, Class of 2013, Fox School of Business

Five years ago, Luv Sodha moved to the United States from India with his family. He visited Temple, sat in on a class, and immediately felt at home. But one question loomed: how to afford tuition. As an international student, he couldn’t qualify for federal loans or financial aid.

So he committed to working hard—from earning top grades and mentoring his peers to excelling in internships, case competitions and professional organizations to supporting the local community by preparing tax returns pro-bono. He put his experience to work right away, and because of that he was awarded a full-tuition scholarship for his senior year.

His plan as a new member of the alumni community? To pay it forward.

“I’ve had the opportunity to earn my way, through the philanthropy of others, and for that I am both grateful and proud. My goal is to create a scholarship for a student like me—someone facing unique challenges as international student.”

Find out how you, too, can help ensure students like Luv can take advantage of every opportunity at Temple.
