USC Gould Scholarships

USC Gould School of Law offers highly selective merit scholarship opportunities to outstanding students who represent the exceptional quality and diversity within our Graduate & International Programs student body.

All applicants to our programs are automatically considered for each of our scholarship awards and no additional documents are required. No separate application is necessary, but you are welcome to submit a brief letter with your degree application to highlight your qualifications.

Scholarship offers are released via email at the time of admission.

Outside Scholarships

USC's Office of Academic Honors and Fellowships oversees a number of scholarship, fellowship, and other funding opportunities for graduate students, many of which are open to students in USC Gould's Graduate & International Programs. You may search the Awards and Fellowship Database for opportunities specific to your interests.

We also encourage you to explore financial aid from additional sources in the U.S. or your home country. In order to assist you, we have set forth a list of outside scholarship resources for your reference. While we do not have further information on these organizations nor do we endorse any, we do encourage students to contact the organizations themselves for more information.

Federal Loans

U.S. citizens and permanent residents who wish to pay for school through loans from the U.S. government must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be completed as early as October 1 of the year prior to the year in which you intend to enroll, and should be completed as early as possible. USC's school code is 001328.

After you have successfully completed the FAFSA, and have been admitted, you will receive an electronic notification from USC Gould's Office Financial Aid with additional information and instructions on the federal loan application process. For additional details about the student loan options available to graduate students, please refer to http://financialaid.usc.edu/loans/.
