2016 Global Prize Winners


At the 2016 commencement, the university recognized 62 seniors as USC Global Scholars. Each student spent at least ten weeks outside the U.S. as part of their undergraduate experience in their field of study and completed a capstone project and reflective essay related to the international experiences with a grade point average of 3.5 or better. Of the eighteen graduating scholars who were selected as prize finalists by their school, ten have been nominated to receive a Global Scholar prize. The ten prize recipients form an exemplary group.
