Staff Assembly Scholarship

The Staff Assembly Scholarship, established in 2016, is designed to show our appreciation for the approximately 500 USC staff members who are pursuing a USC degree at any given time, and to provide additional funding to those who best represent the USC staff community. The scholarship program is made possible by a grant from USC senior administration, and awards six $1000 scholarships to selected students to help pay for books, fees, etc.

Applicants must be:

  • in good standing with the university,
  • a Tuition Assistance Benefit eligible staff member, and
  • currently enrolled in any USC degree-granting program.
