All applicants will be automatically considered for scholarships based on their academic merit, distinguished accomplishments and skills.

WBB is targeted for students with an outstanding academic record. The WBB universities offer merit-based scholarships covering one-half or one-quarter of annual tuition fees. Once awarded, they can be renewed from year to year, if academic requirements are upheld. All applicants will be automatically considered for scholarships based on their academic merit, distinguished accomplishments and skills.

There is no need to file a separate scholarship application. Students should check for other country-specific scholarships, financial aid packages and loans on the websites of the three partner schools. Candidates for regionally accepted merit programs should inquire if the award program can be applied toward the WBB program.

 

Financial Aid


Financial aid is available for WBB students. However, the WBB program is not eligible for federal or state financial aid. The USC Financial Aid Office and Marshall work together to ensure students receive aid packages that meet their need based on the cost of attendance at the various schools.

Students who are interested in financial aid should submit a FAFSA and CSS Profile when applying to USC using USC's school code. Need-based aid will be administered as follows:

Year 1 - USC

The Financial Aid Office will determine a student's financial need. Any Pell Grant, Cal Grant, or SEOG that the student would have been eligible for will be replaced with University Grant. Students will not receive work study or federal loans, but can apply for private loans to cover the cost of attendance if needed. For more information about private loans, please click here.

Year 2 - HKUST

Students do not need to complete a FAFSA or CSS Profile this year. Using the expected family contribution from Year 1 and HKUST's cost of attendance, Marshall will determine how much to award in aid while the student is away from USC. Students can also apply for private loans if needed.

Year 3 - Bocconi

Students do not need to complete a FAFSA or CSS Profile this year. Using the expected family contribution from Year 1 and Bocconi's cost of attendance, Marshall will determine how much to award in aid while the student is away from USC. Students can also apply for private loans if needed.

Year 4 - Choose a school to attend

If the student attends HKUST or Bocconi, aid will be administered the same way as Years 2 or 3. Students who choose to return to USC should submit an updated FAFSA and CSS Profile. The Financial Aid Office will recalculate the student's need and administer aid the same way as Year 1.
