What to Know about Freshmen Scholarships

By November 24, 2009No Comments

We have been getting a good amount of questions about scholarships at USC.  Here’s some helpful information about applying for scholarships.  Make sure you apply for as many as you can!

University Scholarships

USC offers a number of merit based scholarships (Full Tuition, Half Tuition, Quarter Tuition, etc.) that are awarded based on academic excellence, leadership, service, talent and other criteria.  If you would like to be considered for a university scholarship, make sure to submit your Part II Application by December 1.  There is no scholarship application – just submit your application for admission.

USC-Affiliated Groups’ Scholarships

The university publishes this list of scholarships available from all the groups within USC (alumni groups, etc) along with the details and specific instructions about how to apply for each scholarship.  Please make sure to mark down the different dates, criteria and application materials needed for each of these.  Some of these deadlines are December 1st!

ROTC Scholarships

Information about the each of the ROTC programs at USC is available at the following sites:

Outside Scholarships

The USC Office of Financial Aid made a list of third party scholarship resources.  You can use the search engines on that list to find scholarships that you qualify for.  The more money you find, the more money you can get!

Need-Based Financial Aid

It is important to note that this entry only talks in detail about merit-based scholarships.  We will post a similar note about need-based financial aid next week.

See you then!
