The Graduate School offers a range of fellowships and merit-based awards to attract and support outstanding graduate students, including the award-winning Presidential Fellowship. In addition, we offer travel grants to encourage and support student presentation of research at professional meetings nationally and internationally.
Recruiting fellowships may require nomination by your prospective graduate director prior to admission to USC. In such cases, you should contact your department to let them know you want to be nominated for an award.
Current graduate students have the opportunity to apply for a variety of research, teaching, and service awards that are administered by The Graduate School.
