Find an Opportunity

USC has compiled a number of resources to assist students in their exploration of awards and fellowships.

The USC Awards and Fellowships Database is a searchable database of opportunities both within and beyond the University.  While it is by no means exhaustive, the database offers a great tool to begin to identify opportunities of interest.

USC Campus Partner Opportunities highlight other notable USC opportunities for continuing students.  For more information about the following programs be in touch directly with the sponsoring USC department.

Additional External Opportunities offers additional examples of opportunities which have yet to be transferred into the USC Awards and Fellowships Database.  This content will be moved shortly but in the interim we maintain it here for student reference.

Additional Search Tools

USC Dornsife Scholarships and Other Opportunities 
There are many scholarships for study abroad. However, most are geared to promote the study of critical languages (Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, etc.) and destinations outside Western Europe and Oceania (Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East). Students should research scholarships well in advance of studying abroad as many applications are due six months to more than a year in advance of travel. Plan strategically to give your application a competitive edge. Overseas Studies Advisors can offer guidance.
