Provost's Ph.D. Fellowship Program
Provost's Fellowships are for incoming PhD students who show outstanding potential for
academic careers at top universities or highly influential non-academic positions, including
students who will increase diversity at the university or in the given field.
Incoming Provost's Ph.D. Fellows receive an annual stipend, full tuition and year-round health and dental insurance.
Candidates for Provost's Ph.D. Fellowships undergo a rigorous review by the program to which they are applying and by a faculty committee of internationally recognized scholars at USC. Only nominations forwarded from USC departments are considered.
