New Financial Aid & Scholarship opportunities do not stop after the admission process.

Each year, continuing undergraduates should be re-evaluating their need and merit-based aid opportunities. This page helps to outline current available funding sources for continuing undergraduate students at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. In most cases the primary resource for financial assistance is need-based aid provided by the USC Financial Aid Office. Please visit their website for information on applying for and receiving aid as well as a listing of several scholarship resources. Be sure to pay special attention to all of their deadlines!

Viterbi Scholarship Application & Renewal

In addition to applying for need-based aid, continuing undergraduate students within the Viterbi School can apply for various donor-supported scholarships each year via the Viterbi Scholarship Application. Any continuing undergraduate student who has received the Viterbi School Merit Scholarship and/or the Merit Research Award must also submit the application for renewal every year by the deadline.

This year’s deadline is March 1st, 2017. Continuing undergraduate students also have the opportunity to submit an application by this date if they are interested in requesting additional funding.
