Scholarship Timeline: Scholarship gifts contributed to USC Marshall/Leventhal by May 1st may be awarded to students as early as the upcoming academic year. Marshall continuing undergraduate students apply online in the Spring for the following academic year using a universal application that automatically determines their eligibility across all available scholarships. Graduate students are considered for a scholarship based on donor criteria and the quality of their application for admission to their respective program.
Scholarship Award Amounts: Scholarship awards vary greatly depending on donor criteria and each students’ financial need as determined by USC’s Financial Aid Office. Academic excellence, leadership and community service activities at USC and in the surrounding community are also considered.
Historical Impact and Need for Scholarships: Thousands of students have benefited from our Marshall Scholarship Program in the last 25 years. Annual and endowed scholarships are vital to the hopes and dreams of our students – helping them to pursue a USC education regardless of their financial situation. To ensure that we continue to attract and retain the most promising and talented students, we must dramatically increase the number of available scholarships.
USC Marshall Scholarships At-A-Glance
Two thirds of our students require financial assistance. Scholarships help close financial gaps and reward students’ efforts to achieve academic excellence. With scholarship support, exceptional students are able to choose USC Marshall over other institutions to begin or continue their studies. USC Marshall and Leventhal scholarships make the cost of education more accessible and affordable, allowing students to thrive and succeed.
Step 1: Choose the Amount and Type of Scholarship You Wish to Support
1. Endowed ScholarshipsMinimum Gift: $100,000, payable over 3 to 5 yearsRecognition: Named or AnonymousEndowed Scholarships are invested by USC as part of its endowment pool. Part of the interest earned each year (determined by the USC Board of Trustees) is used to make the scholarship award to the student recipients. Additional interest is returned to principal to ensure the continued growth of the fund and to protect it against inflation. Endowed scholarships provide support in perpetuity for generations of outstanding and deserving students! The fund can be named after an individual, family, or even in honor of a special former professor.
2. Annual ScholarshipsMinimum Gift: $25,000, funded yearlyRecognition: Named or AnonymousAnnual Scholarships are awarded to one or more recipients and may be renewed each academic year, if the donor so chooses, in order for the scholarships to continue.
3. Scholarships BequestMinimum Gift: Varies ($250,000 to endow)Recognition: Named or AnonymousThese scholarship gifts are made as part of a will or trust for a specific amount or a percentage of the balance remaining in the donor’s estate and are awarded at a future date.
Step 2: Determine the Eligibility Criteria For Your Scholarship
You can help establish the criteria for your scholarship. Examples might include level of study (graduate or undergraduate), area of study (marketing, accounting, entrepreneurship, etc.), academic merit and/or financial need, involvement in leadership and service activities, etc. The University, however, will be fully responsible for selecting the recipients based on the criteria guided by the donor.
Step 3: Approve and Sign a Gift Agreement For Statement of Intent
Gifts or pledges of $25,000 or more require a gift agreement or statement of intent (for donor-advised funds) signed by the University and you, the donor. These documents ensure that your wishes are followed, now and in the future and outline the pledge payment amounts and schedule that work best for you. (Note: To avoid conflicts of interest, the documents state: “Students who are immediate or extended family members, dependents, or other relatives of the donor or selection committee members are not eligible to receive scholarships from this gift.”)

2022 Marshall Scholarship Celebration
"If I could say something to the people that made my scholarship possible...you've changed my life. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much. I screamed with joy when I got the notification that I got the scholarship. I still remember that memory. It's a very deep thank you from the bottom of my heart." Naomi Gau '23
