The Ilya and Emilia Kabakov Fellowship is an honorary award established in 2012 in honor of the Russian-born, American-based artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. The fellowship will be awarded to a Tyler School of Art student from the Sculpture department completing an MFA degree whose achievement has been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice.

The Odili Donald Odita Scholarship in Painting was established through the generous support of The Ronald and Jo Carole Lauder Foundation. The scholarship will provide a one-year tuition scholarship for an MFA student in Painting with financial need. Recipients may retain this scholarship for up to two years provided they maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or above. All accepted students who have not received University funding in the form of a Temple University Fellowship or a Temple University Future Faculty Fellowship will be eligible for consideration.
