Grant & Scholarship Information

SOURCES OF GRANTS, SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS

  • Your academic department or professional school
  • USC Financial Aid Office (administers federal aid programs, including Federal Work-Study awards; coordinates departmental scholarships and stipends)
  • The Graduate School (administers fellowship programs and provides information about non-university funding sources)
  • Federal agencies and private foundations (support for students engaged in specific fields of study)
  • Corporations (fellowships or tuition reimbursement for employees)

TERMS OF YOUR AWARD

If you are the recipient of an award from your department or an outside source, the award and method of disbursement should be shown on your Statement of Financial Aid. If you have questions, contact the academic unit administering the award.

OBTAINING YOUR FUNDING

Your department or the non-university funding source must notify the Financial Aid Office of your award, so that the funds can be deposited in your student account. Outside agencies should submit award funding to the Financial Aid Office at least one month prior to the beginning of classes.

Grants and scholarships will be automatically credited to your student account no later than the Wednesday before the first day of each semester. Graduate stipends are paid monthly.
