Annenberg Fellowship Nomination Process

The USC Annenberg Graduate Fellowship Program is administered by the USC Graduate School. Nominations will be accepted from the deans of the three eligible Schools. Only students who are regarded as truly outstanding by the faculty and thus considered deserving of a USC Annenberg Graduate Fellowship should be nominated. It is, of course, expected that all nominees will be approved for full admission by the program to which they are applying.

Nominations will be made on-line by the dean’s office. The nomination deadline for students in Ph.D. programs is 5:00 p.m., Friday, January 29th, 2010. The nomination deadline for students applying to M.A. and M.F.A. programs will vary by program. Each M.A. and M.F.A. program deadline will be determined by the dean in consultation with the Graduate School.

Review Process and Notification

The application dossiers will be reviewed as soon as possible after the submission deadline. Letters for those students who will receive fellowship offers will be generated by the Graduate School and sent directly to the students by both email and hard copy. The Graduate School’s goal is to make award decisions within 2 weeks of the submission deadline. Schools will be notified as soon as decisions are made. It is the responsibility of the school to notify those students who will not receive awards of the decision.
